Replication regulatory protein RepA2 (IPR019661)

Short name: RepA2

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family of proteins regulates the replication of rolling circle replication (RCR) plasmids that have a double-strand replication origin (dso). Regulation of the replication of the RCR plasmids occurs mainly at the initiation of leading strand synthesis at the dso, such that concentration of Rep protein controls plasmid replication [PMID: 9409148].
