Colicin-E5 immunity protein (IPR020127)

Short name: Colicin-E5_imm

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Colicins, which are produced by bacteria carrying the corresponding Col plasmids, kill sensitive Escherichia coli cells using different mechanisms. Colicin E5 is a tRNase toxin. The immunity protein ImmE5 is a specific inhibitor of colicin E5 that is expressed to protect the host cells. It binds to E5 C-terminal ribonuclease domain (CRD) to prevent cell death [PMID: 17099236, PMID: 16524591].
