Domain

Smr domain (IPR002625)

Short name: Smr_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The Smr domain is an around 90-residue domain found in:

  • The C-terminal region of the mutS2 proteins from bacteria and plants.
  • The small mutS related (smr) proteins from bacteria and eukaryotes.

These proteins could be involved in mismatch repair (MMR) or/and chromosome crossing-over and segregation. It has been proposed that the Smr domain acts as a nicking endonuclease [PMID: 10431172, PMID: 10973051].
