Ti-type conjugative transfer system, TraG-like (IPR003688)

Short name: Ti-typ_conjug_TS_TraG-like

Family relationships


This entry represents TraG proteins and their homologues. These proteins contain a P-loop and walker-B site for nucleotide binding. TraG is essential for DNA transfer in bacterial conjugation. These proteins are thought to mediate interactions between the DNA-processing (Dtr) and the mating pair formation (Mpf) systems [PMID: 9767571, PMID: 11976307].
