Plasmid partitioning protein, RepA (IPR017818)

Short name: Plasmid_partition_RepA

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships

None.

Description

The RepA (or ParA) protein is involved in replicon partitioning [PMID: 11591666]. All known examples occur in bacterial species with two or more replicons, on a plasmid or the smaller chromosome. Note that an apparent exception may be seen as a pseudomolecule from assembly of an incompletely sequenced genome. Repa belongS to a larger family that also includes the enzyme cobyrinic acid a,c-diamide synthase,.
