PROSITE documentation PDOC00943 [for PROSITE entry PS01227]

Uncharacterized protein family UPF0012 signature


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

  • Yeast chromosome X hypothetical protein YJL126w.
  • Yeast chromosome XII hypothetical protein YLR351c.
  • Fission yeast hypothetical protein SpAC26A3.11.
  • Escherichia coli hypothetical protein ybeM.
  • Bacillus subtilis hypothetical protein yhcX.
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis hypothetical protein MtCY20G9.06c.
  • Synechocystis strain PCC 6803 hypothetical protein sll0601.
  • A Pseudomonas fluorescens hypothetical protein in pqqF 5'region.
  • A Staphylococcus hypothetical protein in agr operon.

Except for yhcX which is larger, these are protein of about 30 to 35 Kd which contain, in their central section, a well conserved region centered on a cysteine residue.
