YcgL domain profile


YcgL represents a conserved class of small proteins widespread in γproteobacteria. This group of protein contains a 85-residue domain of unknown function. The YcgL domain contains two α-helices and four β-strands in the sequential arrangement β1-β2-α1-β3-α2-β4 as a 3-layer (α/β/α) sandwich (see <PDB:2H7A>) [1].

The profile we developed covers the entire YcgL domain.
