Domain

Enhanced intracellular survival protein domain (IPR025559)

Short name: Eis_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in enhanced intracellular survival protein eis from Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It shares protein sequence similarity with the SCP2 sterol-binding domain.

eis may participate in pathogenesis, possibly by enhancing survival of the bacteria in host macrophages during infection [PMID: 10629183].
