Project context and summary :

Harmonin Homology Domains (HHD) are protein-protein interaction domains primarily identified in a few proteins involved in earing and vision. Only six HHD-containing proteins encompassing 9 HHD domains have been identified so far in mammals. Four of these proteins are neuronal and also contain PDZ domains, exhibiting different HHD-PDZ modular organisations. This project aims at 1) searching orthologs with HHD domains, 2) establishing the phylogenetic tree of HHD-containing proteins and 3) understanding how various patterns of HHD-PDZ modules from the previsouly mentioned neuronal proteins originated.
