EthD domain (IPR009799)

Short name: EthD_dom

Domain relationships

Description

This domain is found in several bacterial sequences which are related to the EthD (Ethyl tert-butyl ether degradation) protein of Rhodococcus ruber Q93EX2. In Rhodococcus ruber, EthD is thought to be involved in the degradation of ethyl tert-butyl ether (ETBE) [PMID: 11673424]. EthD synthesis is induced by ETBE but its exact function is unknown. It is however thought to be essential to the ETBE degradation system.
