Probable Brix domain-containing ribosomal biogenesis protein (IPR023548)

Short name: Brix_dom_Rbsml_bgen_prot

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This entry represents archaeal sequences containing a single Brix domain. The sequences have two unique characteristics: (1) the Brix domain charged regions are totally absent at the N terminus and are reduced in number to about 10 residues at the C terminus; and (2) the C-terminal part of the Brix domain itself is minimal. Biological data for some proteins in this family suggest a role in ribosome biogenesis and rRNA binding [PMID: 11406393, PMID: 11246005].
