Sporulation lipoprotein YhcN/YlaJ-like (IPR019076)

Short name: Spore_lipoprot_YhcN/YlaJ-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry contains YhcN and YlaJ, which are predicted lipoproteins that have been detected as spore proteins but not vegetative proteins in Bacillus subtilis [PMID: 9611260, PMID: 12480901]. Both appear to be expressed under control of the RNA polymerase sigma-G factor. The YlaJ-like members of this family have a low-complexity, strongly acidic, 40-residue C-terminal domain.
