Homologous Superfamily

Transposase IS200-like superfamily (IPR036515)

Short name: Transposase_17_sf

Overlapping entries

Description

Transposases are needed for efficient transposition of the insertion sequence or transposon DNA. This entry represents a domain superfamily found in transposases for IS200 from Escherichia coli [PMID: 10471738]. The structure of this domain has a ferredoxin-like fold, which consists of an alpha-beta sandwich with antiparallel beta-sheet.
