Bacterial glucose inhibited division protein A (gene gidA) is a protein of 70
Kd whose function is not yet known and whose sequence is highly conserved. It
is evolutionary related to yeast hypothetical protein YGL236C, Caenorhabditis
elegans hypothetical protein F52H3.2 and a Bacillus subtilis protein called
gid (and which is different from B.subtilis gidA).
We selected two highly conserved regions as signature patterns. Both regions
are located in the central region of the protein.
