Family

Podovirus DNA packaging protein (IPR008784)

Short name: Podovirus_Gp16

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family includes several DNA encapsidation protein sequences from the phi-29-like viruses (gene product 16, Gp16). Gp16 is the primary ATPase of the motor assembly of phi-29; it binds to the prohead RNA to form a pentameric ring to complete the assembly of the DNA packaging motor [PMID: 18674782, PMID: 16376938, PMID: 22795974].
