PROSITE documentation PDOC00969
Uncharacterized protein family UPF0020 signature


The following uncharacterized proteins have been shown [1] to share regions of similarities:

  • Escherichia coli hypothetical protein ycbY and HI0116/15, the corresponding Haemophilus influenzae protein.
  • Bacillus subtilis hypothetical protein ypsC.
  • Synechocystis strain PCC 6803 hypothetical protein slr0064.
  • Methanococcus jannaschii hypothetical proteins MJ0438 and MJ0710.

These are hydrophilic proteins of from 40 Kd to about 80 Kd. They can be picked up in the database by the following pattern.
