Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

Description

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.
