Homologous Superfamily

Translation repressor RegA superfamily (IPR036516)

Short name: Transl_repress_RegA_sf

Overlapping entries


The translational regulator protein RegA, found in Bacteriophage T4 and related phages, binds to a region of messenger RNA (mRNA) that includes the initiator codon. RegA is unusual in that it represses the translation of about 35 early T4 mRNAs but does not affect nearly 200 other mRNAs [PMID: 7761833]. The structure of RegA has a ferredoxin-like fold, which consists of an alpha+beta sandwich with antiparallel beta-sheet.
