If a protein meets these conditions... i

Common conditions

    • Matches HAMAP signature MF_00595
    • taxon = Bacteria
    • fragment ≠ the sequence is fragmented

Special conditions

    • Subsequence at position 138 - 138 aligns to "H" in entry P00864 (individually applies "")
    • Subsequence at position 546 - 546 aligns to "K" in entry P00864 (individually applies "")

... then these annotations are applied i
