Domain

Ribonucleotide reductase, stirrup (IPR015146)

Short name: RNR_stirrup

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The Stirrup domain, found in the prokaryotic protein ribonucleotide reductase, has a molecular mass of 9 kDa and is folded into an alpha/beta structure. It allows for binding of the reductase to DNA via electrostatic interactions, since it has a predominance of positive charges distributed on its surface [PMID: 10891276].
