EKR

Domain of unknown function
EKR
SMART accession number:SM00890
Description: EKR is a short, 33 residue, domain found in bacterial and some lower eukaryotic species which lies between a POR (pyruvate ferredoxin/flavodoxin oxidoreductase) and the 4Fe-4S binding domain Fer4. It contains a characteristic EKR sequence motif. The exact function of this domain is not known.
