Family

Plasmid replication protein (IPR002631)

Short name: Plasmid_rep

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of various bacterial plasmid replication (Rep) proteins. These proteins are essential for replication of plasmids, the Rep proteins are topoisomerases that nick the positive stand at the plus origin of replication and also at the single-strand conversion sequence [PMID: 2695401].
