    Protein Summary

    389300 is a novel protein with two domains, domain N (residues 1-114) and domain C (115:354). The N-terminal domain is a pseudo receiver domain, resembling the receiver domain in two component signaling systems. However, the pseudo receiver domain cannot be phosphorylated due to D->E mutation (E56). The molecular role of these pseudo receiver domains are not well understood. They are known to involve in circadian rhythm in bacteria and highly plants. The C-terminal  domain is ParA/SOJ ATPase-like, however, the Walker A (P-loop) is corrupted (K is mutated to T at position 140). As expected, the ATP bound cannot undergo hydrolysis, so 389300 is not an ATPase, but a pseudo ATPase. Thus, this protein is very interesting in that it is a concatenation of two "pseudo" domains. The C-terminal domain is likely involved in the dimerization of this protein. There are only a few protein sequences with this kind of arrangement. Genomics neighbour analysis suggests this protein is probably related to pillus assembly.
