Unnamed Gene ID: 948570

Known also as: ECK4051; exrB; JW4020; lexC;

NCBI Gene ID: 948570
Species: Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655

SSB binds to RecQ and stimulates DNA unwinding (Shereda, 2007). [More information is available at EcoGene: EG10976]. The product of the essential ssb gene, the highly stable single-stranded DNA binding protein SSB, is involved in replication, recombination, and repair in the DNA metabolism of Escherichia coli. [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG10976].
