Short name: Barstar

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Barstar is a small single chain protein. Barnase is the extracellular ribonuclease IPR001887 of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, and barstar its specific intracellular inhibitor [PMID: 2696173, PMID: 3050134]. Expression of barstar is necessary to counter the lethal effect of expressed active barnase. The structure of the barnase-barstar complex is known [PMID: 8043575].
