Family

DNA terminal protein Gp3 (IPR008770)

Short name: DNA_terminal_Gp3

Family relationships

None.

Description

DNA terminal protein Gp3, found in a number of Bacillus phages, is linked to the 5' ends of both strands of the genome through a phosphodiester bond between the beta-hydroxyl group of a serine residue and the 5'-phosphate of the terminal deoxyadenylate. This protein is essential for DNA replication and is involved in the priming of DNA elongation [PMID: 6779279].
