Stringent starvation protein B

Gene

sspB

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Enhances recognition of ssrA-tagged proteins by the ClpX-ClpP protease; the ssrA degradation tag (AANDENYALAA) is added trans-translationally to proteins that are stalled on the ribosome, freeing the ribosome and targeting stalled peptides for degradation. SspB activates the ATPase activity of ClpX. Seems to act in concert with SspA in the regulation of several proteins during exponential and stationary-phase growth.
Also stimulates degradation of the N-terminus of RseA (residues 1-108, alone or in complex with sigma-E) by ClpX-ClpP in a non-ssrA-mediated fashion.

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Homodimer. Binds 1 ssrA-tag per monomer; if the first Asn residue of the ssrA tag is mutated to Ala, SspB no longer binds the protein or stimulates ClpX-ClpP degradation (PubMed:11009422). Binds the N-terminus (residues 1-108) of RseA with and without sigma-E (PubMed:15371343); although ssrA and the N-terminal fragment of RseA both bind to SspB competitively they bind in opposite directions in its peptide-binding groove.5 Publications

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
