Chaperonin-like RbcX (IPR003435)

Short name: Chaperonin_RcbX

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships

None.

Description

The RbcX protein has been identified as having a possible chaperonin-like function [PMID: 9642201]. The rbcX gene is juxtaposed to and cotranscribed with rbcL and rbcS encoding RubisCO in Anabaena sp. (strain CA / ATCC 33047). RbcX has been shown to possess a chaperonin-like function assisting correct folding of RubisCO in Escherichia coli expression studies and is needed for RubisCO to reach its maximal activity [PMID: 9171433].
