Protein FULL name:

single-stranded DNA-binding protein [Escherichia coli str. K-12 substr. MG1655].

Ssb (Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655) is product of expression of ssb gene.

Ssb is involved in:

DDS in Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655

FUNCTION: This protein is essential for replication of the chromosomes and its single-stranded DNA phages. It is also involved in DNA recombination and repair.

SUBUNIT: Homotetramer.

PTM: Phosphorylated on tyrosine residue(s).

SIMILARITY: Contains 1 SSB domain.

NCBI GenPept GI number(s): 16131885
Species: Escherichia coli
