    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract In a search for proteins interacting with the resistance protein Cf9 from tomato, a new cDNA was cloned and characterized. Protein sequence database searches suggested that the 120 residue-N terminal domain of the encoded protein (named VAP27) is highly similar to the VAP33 protein family from animals, to uncharacterized plant proteins, and to a lower extent, to the major sperm protein (MSP) from nematodes. The second half of the protein is similar to VAMP and to the VAP33 N-terminus comprising a predicted coiled-coil region followed by a transmembrane segment. The sequence/structure comparison of VAP27 with the crystal structure of AsMSP1 from Ascaris suum, using molecular modeling with the threading method, suggested that the N-terminus of VAP27 does possess a MSP-like domain that might participate in the formation of a protein–protein network. The coiled-coil region of VAP27 was modeled based on the structure of the VAP- and VAMP-containing SNARE complex. The coiled-coil region might also be involved in protein–protein interactions similar to VAP–VAMP interactions.
