Regulator of ribonuclease activity A (IPR010203)

Short name: RraA

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


The regulator of ribonuclease activity A (RraA) family includes a number of closely related sequences from bacteria and plants. The Escherichia coli member has been characterised, and its crystal structure determined [PMID: 14499605]. It acts as a regulator of the endonuclease RNase E [PMID: 13678585] (see IPR004659) by binding to it and inhibiting RNA processing [PMID: 14499605].
