MMSYN1_0327 JVCI plays important role in chromosome organization and segregation. Its function is poorly understood, however.

  • obgE: Required for chromosome segregation. Plays a role in the stringent response, perhaps by sequestering 50S ribosomal subunits and decreasing protein synthesis, and a non-essential role in the late steps of ribosome biogenesis, perhaps acting as a checkpoint for correct 50S subunit synthesis (Probable).
  • smc smc in Mycoplasma mycoides encodes chromosome partition protein Smc, which is involved in chromosome partitioning (separation of chromosomes before cell division) and chromosome condensation (compacting).
  • mukB mukB in E. Coli encodes chromosome partition protein MukB, which is involved in chromosome partitioning (separation of chromosomes before cell division) and chromosome condensation (compacting).
