Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the ‘correct annotation’ for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Sigma factors are initiation factors that promote the attachment of RNA polymerase to specific initiation sites and are then released. Held in an inactive form by a cognate anti-sigma factor RsbW (UsfX) until released. Increased expression decreases growth rate, and after 3 days increases the expression of 51 loci encoding 33 protein-coding genes as well as some non-coding RNA (PubMed:22307756).4 Publications

Monomer.

Interacts transiently with the RNA polymerase catalytic core formed by RpoA, RpoB, RpoC and RpoZ (2 alpha, 1 beta, 1 beta' and 1 omega subunit) to form the RNA polymerase holoenzyme that can initiate transcription.

Interacts (via sigma-70 factor domain 4) with anti-sigma-F factor RsbW (UsfX) with a possible 2:1 RbsW:SigF stoichiometry, which inhibits SigF activity.

<p>This subsection of the ‘Family and domains’ section provides general information on the biological role of a domain.

Several domains are described in this subsection.<p><a href='/help/domain_cc' target='_top'>More...</a></p>Domaini

The sigma-70 factor domain-2 mediates sequence-specific interaction with the -10 element in promoter DNA, and plays an important role in melting the double-stranded DNA and the formation of the transcription bubble. The sigma-70 factor domain-2 mediates interaction with the RNA polymerase subunits RpoB and RpoC (By similarity).By similarity
The sigma-70 factor domain-4 contains a helix-turn-helix (H-T-H) motif that mediates interaction with the -35 element in promoter DNA. The domain also mediates interaction with the RNA polymerase subunit RpoA. Interactions between sigma-70 factor domain-4 and anti-sigma factors prevents interaction of sigma factors with the RNA polymerase catalytic core (By similarity).By similarity

<p>This subsection of the ‘Family and domains’ section provides information about the sequence similarity with other proteins.<p><a href='/help/sequence_similarities' target='_top'>More...</a></p>Sequence similaritiesi

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
