Homologous Superfamily

ScpA-like, C-terminal (IPR023093)

Short name: ScpA-like_C

Overlapping entries

None.

Description

This superfamily represents a conserved C-terminal region found in bacterial segregation and condensation protein A (ScpA) as well as in eukaryotic cohesins of the Rad21 and Scc1 families. ScpA participates in chromosomal partition during cell division. It may act via the formation of a condensin-like complex containing Smc and ScpB that pull DNA away from mid-cell into both cell halves.
