Family

Bacteriophage P2, GpY, holin (IPR007633)

Short name: Phage_P2_GpY_holin

Family relationships

None.

Description

Holins are a diverse family of proteins that cause bacterial membrane lysis during late-protein synthesis. It is thought that the temporal precision of holin-mediated lysis may occur through the buildup of a holin oligomer which causes the lysis [PMID: 11459934].

This entry represents the Bacteriophage P2, GpY, holin protein. The characteristics of the protein distribution suggest prophage matches in addition to the phage matches.
