Comments [?]

case not <OC:Actinomycetota> and not <OC:Aquificae> and not <OC:Chlamydiota>
Function A probable RNA chaperone. Forms a complex with KhpB which binds to cellular RNA and controls its expression. Plays a role in peptidoglycan (PG) homeostasis and cell length regulation.
Subunit Forms a complex with KhpB.
Function A probable RNA-binding protein.
end case
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the KhpA RNA-binding protein family.
