Most proteins are composed of one or more conserved functional regions called
domains. This track shows the high-quality, manually-curated
domains found in proteins associated with the RefSeq Genes transcripts.
The proteins associated with RefSeq genes were submitted to the set of Pfam-A HMMs which annotate regions within the predicted peptide that are recognizable as Pfam protein domains. These regions are then mapped to the transcripts themselves using the
Of the several options for filtering out false positives, the "Trusted cutoff (TC)"
threshold method is used in this track to determine significance. For more information regarding thresholds and scores, see the HMMER
Note: There is currently an undocumented but known HMMER problem which results in lessened
sensitivity and possible missed searches for some zinc finger domains. Until a fix is released for HMMER /PFAM thresholds, please also consult the "UniProt Domains" subtrack of the UniProt track for more comprehensive zinc finger annotations.
