Membrane bound YbgT-like (IPR012994)

Short name: YbgT_YccB

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This family contains a set of membrane proteins, typically 33 amino acids long. The family has no known function, but the protein is found in the operon CydAB in Escherichia coli. Members have a consensus motif (MWYFXW), which is rich in aromatic residues. The protein forms a single membrane-spanning helix. This family seems to be restricted to proteobacteria [PMID: 9068659].
