TIGR03598: GTPase_YsxC (this model, PSSM-Id:163346 is obsolete and has been replaced by 274670)
ribosome biogenesis GTP-binding protein YsxC/EngB
Members of this protein family are a GTPase associated with ribosome biogenesis, typified by YsxC from Bacillus subutilis. The family is widely but not universally distributed among bacteria. Members commonly are called EngB based on homology to EngA, one of several other GTPases of ribosome biogenesis. Cutoffs as set find essentially all bacterial members, but also identify large numbers of eukaryotic (probably organellar) sequences. This protein is found in about 80 percent of bacterial genomes.
