DprA DNA processing chain A

| posted 20 Apr, 2018 20:18
I would like to propose DprA DNA processing chain A to be added to the official list. It is required for processing DNA in natural transformation of bacteria and is ubiquitous. The putative gene in Hookmount, an A3 is over 99.6% match and nearly 100% coverage to the DprA gene in several bacteria with evalue ~3x10-18. It is Pham 30776. The HHpred results are attached.
