Microtubule Interacting and Trafficking molecule domain
MIT
SMART accession number:SM00745
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR007330):

The MIT domain forms an asymmetric three-helix bundle. It is found in vacuolar sorting proteins, spastin (probable ATPase involved in the assembly or function of nuclear protein complexes), and a sorting nexin, which may play a role in intracellular trafficking.

A 'variant' MIT domain has been described at the N-terminal region of a related AAA-ATPase, mammalian katanin p60 [(PUBMED:20339000)].
