Membrane insertase YidC, N-terminal (IPR028053)

Short name: Membr_insert_YidC_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



YidC, its mitochondrial homologue Oxa1, and its chloroplast homologue are required for the insertion and assembly of the bacterial/organellar inner (or only) membrane [PMID: 18234665, PMID: 18093969]. This entry represents the N-terminal domain of YidC from Gram-negative bacteria, which includes a large periplasmic domain lacking in YidC members from Gram-positive species. The structure of the periplasmic domain has been solved [PMID: 18234665, PMID: 18093969].
