Enhancer of rudimentary signature


The Drosophila protein 'enhancer of rudimentary' (gene (e(r)) is a small protein of 104 residues whose function is not yet clear. From an evolutionary point of view, it is highly conserved [1] and has been found to exist in probably all multicellular eukaryotic organisms. It has been proposed that this protein plays a role in the cell cycle.

As as signaure pattern, we selected a conserved region in the central part of the protein.
