InterPro : IPR016122

Name  Sporulation regulator, sensor kinase SpoOB-type, C-terminal Short Name  Spore_sensor_kin_SpoOB-type_C
Type  Domain Description  Response regulatory proteins such as sensor kinases control a variety of environmentally induced responses in bacteria. SpoOB is a response regulator that responds to nutritional stress by inducing sporulation. SpoOB is a phosphotransferase that acts upon SpoOA using SpoOF as the phosphor-donor. Phosphorylated SpoOA ca activate sporulation-specific gene transcription [].SpoOB has an alpha-beta core structure that resembles the histidine kinase fold, but lacks the kinase ATP-binding site []. This domain is found at the N-terminal of SpoOB, as well as in other sensor kinases.
