Domain

YozE SAM-like domain (IPR023089)

Short name: YozE_SAM-like

Domain relationships

None.

Description

YozE-like is a family of Firmicute proteins that carries a four-helix motif similar to sterile alpha motif (SAM) domains. The family is suggested to fall into two subfamilies, possibly with differing functions based on the different surface charges on the three structural representatives, YozE, MW0776 and MW1311. This function is not yet known, although it is likely to involve binding to DNA [PMID: 22843344].
