Pleckstrin homology domains: a common fold with diverse functions.

Author information

Department of Anesthesiology, State University of New York at Stony Brook 11794, USA.


Pleckstrin homology (PH) motifs are approximately 100 amino-acid residues long and have been identified in nearly 100 different eukaryotic proteins, many of which participate in cell signaling and cytoskeletal regulation. Despite minimal sequence homology, the three-dimensional structures are remarkably conserved. This review gives an overview of the PH domain architecture and examines the best-studied examples in an attempt to understand their function.
