Homologous Superfamily

Stage V sporulation protein G superfamily (IPR036751)

Short name: SpoVG_sf

Overlapping entries


This entry represents the stage V sporulation protein G (SpoVG) superfamily. It is essential for sporulation and specific to stage V sporulation in Bacillus megaterium and Bacillus subtilis [PMID: 1373326]. In B. subtilis, expression decreases after 30-60 minutes of cold shock [PMID: 8755892].

Structurally, SpoVG comprises a coiled antiparallel beta-sheet packed against the C-terminal helix. In addition, the extensions of strands 4 and 5 form an isolated beta-hairpin.
