Conserved Protein Domain Family

cl02344: Phage_holin_1 Superfamily 
Bacteriophage holin
This family of holins is found in several staphylococcal and streptococcal bacteriophages. Holins are a diverse family of proteins that cause bacterial membrane lysis during late-protein synthesis. It is thought that the temporal precision of holin-mediated lysis may occur through the buildup of a holin oligomer which causes the lysis.
