Class A bacterial acid phosphatases signature
Class A bacterial acid phosphatases  (EC 184.108.40.206) are a family of
related periplasmic enzymes. This family currently consist of:
- Morganela morganii major phosphate-irrepressible acid phosphatase (HPAP)
- Providencia stuartii and Salmonella typhimurium nonspecific acid
phosphatase (NSAP) (gene phoN).
- Zymomonas mobilis acid phosphatase (gene phoC).
As a signature pattern, we selected the most conserved region, a perfectly
conserved octapeptide located in the central region of these enzymes.
