The PB1 domain is an essential part of Par6 protein which in complex with Par3 and aPKC proteins is crucial for establishment of apical-basal polarity of animal cells. The PB1 domain is a modular domain mediating specific protein-protein interactions which play a role in many critical cell processes. A canonical PB1-PB1 interaction, which involves heterodimerization of two PB1 domains, is required for the formation of macromolecular signaling complexes ensuring specificity and fidelity during cellular signaling. The interaction between two PB1 domain depends on the type of PB1. There are three types of PB1 domains: type I which contains an OPCA motif, acidic aminoacid cluster, type II which contains a basic cluster, and type I/II which contains both an OPCA motif and a basic cluster. Interactions of PB1 domains with other protein domains have been described as noncanonical PB1-interactions. The PB1 domain module is conserved in amoebas, fungi, animals, and plants. The Par6 protein contains a type II PB1 domain.
