|BRCA1 C Terminus (BRCT) domain|
Structure of an XRCC1 BRCT domain.
BRCA1 C Terminus (BRCT) domain is a family of evolutionarily related proteins.
The BRCT domain (after the C_terminal domain of a breast cancer susceptibility protein) is found predominantly in proteins involved in cell cycle checkpoint functions responsive to DNA damage, for example as found in the breast cancer DNA-repair protein BRCA1. The domain is an approximately 100 amino acid tandem repeat, which appears to act as a phospho-protein binding domain.
Human proteins containing this domain include:
- BARD1; BRCA1
- CTDP1; DNTT
- MCPH1; MDC1
- PARP1; PARP4; PAXIP1; PES1
- REV1; RFC1; TOPBP1; TP53BP1; XRCC1
