TIGR03815: CpaE_hom_Actino (this model, PSSM-Id:163527 is obsolete and has been replaced by 274798)
helicase/secretion neighborhood CpaE-like protein
Members of this protein family belong to the MinD/ParA family of P-loop NTPases, and in particular show homology to the CpaE family of pilus assembly proteins. Nearly all members are found, not only in a gene context consistent with pilus biogenesis or a pilus-like secretion apparatus, but also near a DEAD/DEAH-box helicase, suggesting an involvement in DNA transfer activity. The model describes a clade restricted to the Actinobacteria.
