MgsA AAA+ ATPase C-terminal (IPR021886)

Short name: MgsA_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



The MgsA protein possesses DNA-dependent ATPase and ssDNA annealing activities [PMID: 15743409]. MgsA contributes to the recovery of stalled replication forks and therefore prevents genomic instability caused by aberrant DNA replication [PMID: 15743409]. Additionally, MgsA may play a role in chromosomal segregation [PMID: 15743409]. This is consistent with a report that MgsA co-localises with the replisome and affects chromosome segregation [PMID: 15743409]. This domain represents the C-terminal region of MgsA. The structure of MgsA has been solved [PMID: 21297161].
