Domain

YSIRK Gram-positive signal peptide (IPR005877)

Short name: YSIRK_signal_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Many surface proteins found in Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and related lineages share apparently homologous signal sequences. A motif resembling [YF]SIRKxxxGxxS[VIA] appears at the start of the transmembrane domain. The GxxS motif appears perfectly conserved, suggesting a specific function and not just homology.
