Comments [?]

Function Gas vesicles are small, hollow, gas filled protein structures that are found in several microbial planktonic microorganisms. They allow the positioning of the organism at the favorable depth for growth. GvpA type proteins form the essential core of the structure (By similarity).
Subcellular location Vacuole, gas vesicle membrane (By similarity).
Similarity Belongs to the gas vesicle protein type A family.
