    Protein Summary

    Gene ECA1910 from Erwinia carotovora atroseptica scri1043 encodes protein YP_050007.1 which likely functions as a dimer (Figure 1).


     The 3cjl structure is likely a representative of a new fold with some resemblance to 3-helical bundle folds such as the serum albumin-like fold of SCOP. No significant hits reported by a Dali search. This protein is the first structural representative of a small (about 60 proteins) family of proteins that are found among proteo- and enterobacteria.


    3cjl monomer consists of a long N-terminal beta-hairpin followed by three alpha helices. The putative active site can be identified by sequence conservation. The highly conserved site (H26, D27, D28, L32, M61, K55, R65, F70, M81, K85, ) in each monomer forms a pocket between the 1st and 2nd helix (Figure 2). The electrostatic surface of the active site is mostly positively charged (Figure 3). The function of this protein is unknown, but the possible substrate may have the properties of being hydrophobic and negatively charged.
