TatD family (IPR001130)

Short name: TatD_family

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry represents the TatD family, which includes TatD and many putative deoxyribonucleases and metal-dependent hydrolases. The family is related to a large superfamily of metalloenzymes [PMID: 9144792]. TatD has been shown to be a 3'-5' exonuclease that processes single-stranded DNA in DNA repair [PMID: 10747959, PMID: 25114049].

In E. coli TatD is encoded by a operon that encodes Tat proteins, including TatA, TatB, and TatC, for protein transport via the Tat (Twin-Arginine Translocation) pathway. However, TatD is not involved in the protein export in the Tat pathway [PMID: 10747959].
