Homologous Superfamily

MTH677-like superfamily (IPR035954)

Short name: MTH677-like_sf


Proteins in this superfamily contain a novel alpha+beta fold, consisting of two alpha-helices (one N-terminal and one C-terminal) packed on the same side of a central beta-hairpin [PMID: 15152082]. They share the structural similarity to Escherichia coli MinE, a protein which controls that division occurs at the midcell site [PMID: 15152082]. A hypothetical protein from Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum (Mth), Mth677, is included in this entry.
