Family relationships

  • Peptidase M20 (IPR002933)
    • Uncharacterised protein family RocB (IPR012166)


This group contains RocB of Bacillus subtilis and related proteins. RocB is one of the three genes found in the rocABC operon in B. subtilis, which is sigma L dependent and induced by arginine, suggesting it is involved in the arginine degradation pathway. The function of members of this family is unknown, though they are related to metallopeptidases belonging to MEROPS peptidase family M20, subfamily M20A (clan MH).
