Putative zinc- or iron-chelating domain containing protein (IPR005358)

Short name: Puta_zinc/iron-chelating_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This family of proteins contains 8 conserved cysteines. It has in the past been annotated as being one of the complex of proteins of the flagellar Fli complex. However this was due to a mis-annotation of the original Salmonella LT2 Genbank entry of 'fliB'. With all its conserved cysteines it is possibly a domain that chelates iron or zinc ions [PMID: 9168604, PMID: 15687208].
