CcmE/CycJ protein (IPR004329)

Short name: CcmE

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships

None.

Description

CcmE is the product of a cluster of Ccm genes that are necessary for cytochrome c biosynthesis in many prokaryotes [PMID: 9712585, PMID: 22497251] and plant mitochondria [PMID: 11069919]. In E. coli, expression of these proteins is induced when the organisms are grown under anaerobic conditions with nitrate or nitrite as the final electron acceptor [PMID: 7635817].
