*The structure of the protein has been determined as part of a protein complex or with a peptide ligand bound. #Repeats/#Blades indicates the number of sequence repeats identified by sequence analysis, followed by the number of blades (and therefore, additional poorly-conserved sequence repeats) identified after structural determination. See text for information on closure mechanisms.

**Aip1p is organized into two 7-bladed propellers; the N-terminal strand closes the C-terminal propeller and then proceeds to blade 1 of the first propeller. There is no similar closure of the first propeller.27
