|SMART accession number:||SM00980
||The THAP domain is a putative DNA-binding domain (DBD) and probably also binds a zinc ion. It features the conserved C2CH architecture (consensus sequence: Cys - 2-4 residues - Cys - 35-50 residues - Cys - 2 residues - His). Other universal features include the location of the domain at the N-termini of proteins, its size of about 90 residues, a C-terminal AVPTIF box and several other conserved residues. Orthologues of the human THAP domain have been identified in other vertebrates and probably worms and flies, but not in other eukaryotes or any prokaryotes (PUBMED:12575992).|
There are 3134 THAP domains in 2721 proteins in SMART's nrdb database.
