DNA gyrase/topoisomerase IV, subunit A, C-terminal repeat (IPR006691)

Short name: GyrA/parC_rep


This repeat is found as 6 tandem copies at the C-termini of GyrA and ParC DNA gyrases. It is predicted to form 4 beta strands and to probably form a beta-propeller structure [PMID: 11948780]. This region has been shown to bind DNA non-specifically and may stabilise the DNA-topoisomerase complex [PMID: 1657531].
