We describe GIFT [for GldG, intraflagellar transport (IFT)] domains in the flavobacterial gliding protein GldG and eukaryotic IFT-52. In eukaryotes, domain homologues are also found in the eukaryotic oligosaccharyltransferase complex and in subtilisin kexin isozyme-1 (SKI-1 or S1P). A distant evolutionary relationship to periplasmic-binding proteins hints that GIFT domains might possess oligosaccharide-binding functions.
