dc.description.abstract Cyclic di-GMP was the first cyclic di-nucleotide second messenger described, presaging the discovery of additional cyclic di-nucleotide messengers in bacteria and eukaryotes. The GGDEF diguanylate cyclase (DGC) and EAL and HD-GYP phosphodiesterase (PDE) domains conduct the turnover of cyclic di-GMP. These three unrelated domains belong to superfamilies that exhibit significant variations in function, to include both enzymatically active and inactive members with a subset involved in synthesis and degradation of other cyclic di-nucleotides. Here we summarize current knowledge of sequence and structural varitions that underpin the functional diversification of cyclic di-GMP turnover proteins. Moreover, we highlight that superfamily diversification is not restricted to cyclic di-GMP signaling domains, as particular DHH/DHHA1 domain and HD domain proteins have been shown to act as cyclic di-AMP phosphodiesterases. We conclude with a consideration of the current limitations that such diversity of action places on bioinformatic prediction of the roles of GGDEF, EAL and HD-GYP domain proteins. en
