Domains are distinct functional and/or structural units in a protein. Usually they
are responsible for a particular function or interaction, contributing to the overall ...
Here, we define a protein domain as an inde- pendent, evolutionary unit that can
form a single-domain protein or be part of one or more different multidomain.
