Plasmid recombination enzyme (IPR001668)

Short name: Mob_Pre

Family relationships



With some plasmids, recombination can occur in a site specific manner that is independent of RecA. In such cases, the recombination event requires another protein called Pre. Pre is a plasmid recombination enzyme. This protein is also known as Mob (conjugative mobilisation) [PMID: 2768188].
