InterPro : IPR014304

Name  RNA polymerase sigma-Z type Short Name  RNA_pol_sigma-Z
Type  Family Description  This entry is a group of RNA polymerase sigma factors where one of the members is designated as SigZ in Bacillus subtilis[]. This group has a very sporadic distribution, B. subtilis, for instance, being the only sequenced strain of Bacilli with a member Dechloromonas aromatica(strain RCB), that appears to have two of these sigma factors. A member of which appears on a plasmid found in Photobacterium profundum SS9and Vibrio fischeri(strain ATCC 700601 / ES114), where a second one is chromosomally encoded.
