Name Recomb_XerS
Bacteria; Streptococcaceae
Templates A2RKP9 (XERS_LACLM); Q7ZAK7 (XERS_STRR6): [Recover all]

Propagated annotation [?]

Identifier, protein and gene names [?]

Protein name
RecName: Full=Tyrosine recombinase XerS;
Gene name

Comments [?]

Function Site-specific tyrosine recombinase, which acts by catalyzing the cutting and rejoining of the recombining DNA molecules. Essential to convert dimers of the bacterial chromosome into monomers to permit their segregation at cell division.
Activity regulation FtsK is required for recombination.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the 'phage' integrase family. XerS subfamily.
