Spiralin (IPR007880)

Short name: Spiralin

Family relationships



This family consists of Spiralin proteins found in spiroplasma bacteria. Spiroplasmas are helically shaped pathogenic bacteria related to the mycoplasmas. The surface of spiroplasma bacteria is crowded with the membrane-anchored lipoprotein spiralin whose structure and function are unknown although its cellular function is thought to be a structural and mechanical one rather than catalytical [PMID: 11988221].
