Family relationships

Description

This family of proteins is related to, but longer than, DNA-binding protein HU. It contains a distinctive domain architecture when compared to HU and related histone-like DNA-binding. Members include, so far, a protein from Bacteroides fragilis and ten from Porphyromonas gingivalis (Bacteroides gingivalis). Both species are oral pathogens.
