This entry represents the FIP-Fve (Fungal Immunomodulatory Protein Fve) is a major fruiting body protein from Flammulina velutipes, a mushroom possessing immunomodulatory activity. It stimulates lymphocyte mitogenesis, suppresses systemic anaphylaxis reactions and oedema, enhances transcription of IL-2, IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha, and haemagglutinates red blood cells. It appears to be a lectin with specificity for complex cell-surface carbohydrates. Fve adopts a tertiary structure consisting of an immunoglobulin-like beta-sandwich, with seven strands arranged in two beta sheets, in a Greek-key topology. It forms a non-covalently linked homodimer containing no Cys, His or Met residues; dimerisation occurs by 3-D domain swapping of the N-terminal helices and is stabilised predominantly by hydrophobic interactions [PubMed12948495].

Browse genome assignments for this superfamily. The SUPERFAMILY hidden Markov model library has been used to carry out SCOP domain assignments to all genomes at the superfamily level.

Alignments of sequences to 1 models in this superfamily are available by clicking on the 'Alignments' icon above. PDB sequences less than 40% identical are shown by default, but any other sequence(s) may be aligned. Select PDB sequences, genome sequences, or paste in or upload your own sequences.

Browse and view proteins in genomes which have different domain combinations including a Fungal immunomodulatory protein, FIP domain.

Examine the distribution of domain superfamilies, or families, across the major taxonomic kingdoms or genomes within a kingdom. This gives an immediate impression of how superfamilies, or families, are restricted to certain kingdoms of life.

Explore domain occurrence network where nodes represent genomes and edges are domain architectures (shared between genomes) containing the superfamily of interest.

There are 1 hidden Markov models representing the Fungal immunomodulatory protein, FIP superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
