Description

The GerMN domain is a region of approximately 100 residues that is found, duplicated, in the Bacillus GerM protein and is implicated in both sporulation and spore germination. It is also found in lipoprotein LpqB. The domain is present in a number of different bacterial species both alone and in association with other domains such as Gmad1 and Gmad2. It is predicted to have a novel alpha-beta fold.
