Domain

Membrane insertase YidC/Oxa1, C-terminal (IPR028055)

Short name: Membr_insert_YidC/Oxa1_C

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the C-terminal domain of YidC/Oxa1 proteins from some species and full length protein from other species. This domain appears to be univeral among bacteria (although absent from Archaea). YidC is a bacterial membrane protein which is required for the insertion and assembly of inner membrane proteins [PMID: 18234665, PMID: 18093969]. The well-characterised YidC protein from Escherichia coli and its close homologues contain a large N-terminal periplasmic domain (IPR028053).
