The annotation and conditions in this rule are derived from the following entries: P0AGE0 (SSB_ECOLI)

If a protein meets these conditions... i

Common conditions

    • Matches HAMAP signature MF_00984
    • taxon = Bacteria
    • fragment ≠ the sequence is fragmented

Special conditions

    • Subsequence at position -5 - 0 aligns to "[DE]-[DE]-[DE]-[IL]-P-F" in entry P0AGE0
    • Subsequence at position 55 - 61 aligns to "W-H-[RS]-[VIL]-V-[LIV]-[FY]" in entry P0AGE0
    • Subsequence at position @PLUS|@CTER|-5@ - @CTER@ aligns to "[DE]-[DE]-[DE]-[IL]-P-F" in entry P0AGE0

... then these annotations are applied i

Protein namei

  • Recommended name:
    Single-stranded DNA-binding protein
    Short name:


  • 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.

Subunit structurei

  • Homotetramer.

DNA bindingi

  • (to residues corresponding to positions 55 - 61)


  • Important for interaction with partner proteins (to residues corresponding to positions @PLUS|@CTER|-5@i - @CTER@i)
