Identifier, protein and gene names [?]

Protein name
RecName: Full=Cytochrome c-type biogenesis protein CcmE;
AltName: Full=Cytochrome c maturation protein E;
AltName: Full=Heme chaperone CcmE;
Gene name
ccmE, cycJ

Comments [?]

Function Heme chaperone required for the biogenesis of c-type cytochromes. Transiently binds heme delivered by CcmC and transfers the heme to apo-cytochromes in a process facilitated by CcmF and CcmH.
case not defined <Property:Membrane> or <Property:Membrane=1>
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein.
else case <Property:Membrane=2>
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein; Periplasmic side.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the CcmE/CycJ family.

Comments In SALCH, the duplicated copy ccmE2 is fused to ccmA2, however, important parts of the proteins are missing and it is therefore probably not functional. May be a pseudogene.
