BacMet ID: BAC0186Code for: Chaperone
Family: HdeB familySequence: FASTA
Cross-database IDs: Link
Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12)Location: Chromosome
Compound: Hydrochloric acid (HCl) [class: Acid]Description: Acid stress chaperone HdeB; Required for optimal acid stress protection, which is important for survival of enteric bacteria in the acidic environment of the host stomach. Exhibits a chaperone-like activity at acidic pH by preventing the aggregation of many different periplasmic proteins.
Length (amino acid): 108
