Family

Dictyostelium REP (IPR007778)

Short name: Dict_REP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of REP proteins from a number of Dictyostelium species (Slime molds). REP protein is probably involved in transcription regulation and control of DNA replication, specifically the amplification of plasmid at low copy numbers. The formation of homomultimers may be required for their regulatory activity [PMID: 10366530].
