Domain always found downstream of DENN domain, found in a variety of signalling proteins
The dDENN domain is part of the tripartite DENN domain. It is always found downstream of the DENN domain itself, which is found in a variety of signalling proteins involved in Rab-mediated processes or regulation of MAPKs signalling pathways. The DENN domain is always encircled on both sides by more divergent domains, called uDENN (for upstream DENN) and dDENN (for downstream DENN). The function of the DENN domain remains to date unclear, although it appears to represent a good candidate for a GTP/GDP exchange activity.
