Short name: Spo11/TopoVI_A_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the N-terminal domain found in Spo11, a meiotic recombination protein found in eukaryotes, and in subunit A of topoisomerase VI, a type IIB topoisomerase found predominantly in archaea [PMID: 10545127, PMID: 12618182]. These two types of proteins share structural homology.
