Ribonucleotide reductase small subunit, prokaryotic (IPR026023)

Short name: RNR_bsu_prok

Family relationships


This entry represents the ribonucleotide reductase small subunit (or ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase subunit beta) found in prokaryotes and some viruses [PMID: 8195103, PMID: 9335290]. Ribonucleotide reductase catalyses the biosynthesis of deoxyribonucleotides from the corresponding ribonucleotides providing the precursors necessary for DNA synthesis.
