There are currently 76 known structures with Asp-box β-propeller domains. These have 2–9 Asp-boxes and represent 16 different proteins and 5 different protein families. There are furthermore 29 known structures with 1–3 s-Asp-box motifs, which represent 12 different proteins and 2 families of 5-bladed β-propellers. Most known structures are from bacteria (unmarked), but there are also several from eukaryotes (species marked by *) and one from a bacteriophage (marked by †).
