This subsection of the ‘Family and domains’ section provides information about the sequence similarity with other proteins.
This subsection only states sequence similarity, excluding proteins with a related name that may function in the same biological pathway, if they do not share sequence similarities.
The ‘Sequence similarities’ subsection provides 2 types of information: the protein ‘Belongs to’ a family and/or ‘Contains’ a given domain.
The lines ‘Belongs to’ always appear before the lines ‘Contains’. The lines are listed in alphanumerical order.
A protein may belong to two (or even more) different families. In this case, we indicate which part of the protein belongs to a given family.
The term ‘domain’ in this context is intended as a structural domain. All domains listed in the ‘Sequence similarities’ subsection of an entry are described in the ‘Domain’, ‘Zinc finger’, ‘Repeat’, ‘Calcium binding’ or ‘DNA binding’ subsections.
