DNA gyrase subunit A - P05653 (GYRA_BACSU)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for P05653: 1
DNA gyrase negatively supercoils closed circular double-stranded DNA in an ATP-dependent manner and also catalyzes the interconversion of other topological isomers of double-stranded DNA rings, including catenanes and knotted rings. (data source: UniProt  )
Catalytic Activity

ATP-dependent breakage, passage and rejoining of double-stranded DNA.

(data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Heterotetramer, composed of two GyrA and two GyrB chains. Within the heterotetramer, GyrA contains the active site tyrosine that forms a covalent intermediate with the DNA, while GyrB contributes the cofactor binding sites and catalyzes ATP hydrolysis. (data source: UniProt  )
Gene names: gyrA cafB nalA BSU00070

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal  

The PDB to UniProt mapping is based on the data provided by the EBI SIFTS project. See also Velankar et al., Nucleic Acids Research 33, D262-265 (2005).
