Conserved Site

Recombination protein RecR, conserved site (IPR015967)

Short name: Rcmb_RecR_CS


The bacterial protein RecR seems to play a role in a recombinational process of DNA repair [PMID: 2674903, PMID: 15116069]. It may act with RecF and RecO.

RecR's structure consists of a N-terminal helix-hairpin-helix (HhH) motif, followed by a Cys4 zinc-finger motif, a Toprim domain and a Walker B motif [PMID: 15116069].

This conserved site represents a putative C4-type zinc finger.
