Propagated annotation [?]

Identifier, protein and gene names [?]

Protein name
RecName: Full=Flagellar brake protein YcgR;
AltName: Full=Cyclic di-GMP binding protein YcgR;
Gene name

Comments [?]

Function Acts as a flagellar brake, regulating swimming and swarming in a bis-(3'-5') cyclic diguanylic acid (c-di-GMP)-dependent manner. Binds 1 c-di-GMP dimer per subunit. Increasing levels of c-di-GMP lead to decreased motility.
Subunit Monomer. Interacts with the flagellar basal bodies.
Subcellular location Bacterial flagellum basal body.
Similarity Belongs to the YcgR family.
