Family

Sulphur transfer protein DsrC/TusE (IPR007453)

Short name: DsrC/TusE

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships

None.

Description

Members of this protein family include TusE, a partner to TusBCD in a sulphur relay system for 2-thiouridine biosynthesis, a tRNA base modification process [PMID: 16387657]. Other members are DsrC [PMID: 18829451], a functionally similar protein in species where the sulphur relay system exists primarily for sulphur metabolism [PMID: 22815818], rather than tRNA base modification. Some members of this family are known explicitly as the gamma subunit of sulphite reductases.
