Short name: WhiA-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry describes a family of DNA-binding proteins widely conserved in Gram-positive bacteria, and occasionally occurring elsewhere, such as in Thermotoga [PMID: 24097947, PMID: 10986251].

The family includes the sporulation regulator WhiA, which is required for expression of the ParB partioning protein during sporogenesis [PMID: 10986251,PMID: 16484182], as well as the uncharacterised protein MG103, found in mycoplasma.
