Comments [?]

case not <OC:Actinomycetota> and not <OC:Aquificae> and not <OC:Chlamydiota>
FUNCTIONA 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.
SUBUNITForms a complex with KhpB.
FUNCTIONA probable RNA-binding protein.
end case
SIMILARITYBelongs to the KhpA RNA-binding protein family.
