Family

Protein of unknown function DUF790, endonuclease-like (IPR008508)

Short name: DUF790

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several hypothetical bacterial and archaeal proteins whose functions have not been experimentally verified. Computational analysis of sequence, predicted structure and genomic context suggests that these proteins may be endonucleases involved in either restriction-modification and/or DNA excision repair [PMID: 15972856].
