Description

The peptidases families associated with clan U- have an unknown catalytic mechanism as the protein fold of the active site domain and the active site residues have not been reported.

This is a group of peptidases belong to MEROPS peptidase family U57 (clan U-). The type example is the YabG protein of Bacillus subtilis. This is a protease involved in the synthesis and maturation of the spore coat proteins SpoIVA and YrbA of B. subtilis [PMID: 11040425].
