Protein

Single-stranded DNA-binding protein

Gene

ssb

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

Functioni

Plays an important role in DNA replication, recombination and repair. Binds to ssDNA and to an array of partner proteins to recruit them to their sites of action during DNA metabolism. Acts as a sliding platform that migrates on DNA via reptation.UniRule annotation3 Publications

Enzyme regulationi

The C-terminal tail exerts an inhibitory effect on ssDNA binding.1 Publication
