General description: Group ECF123 contains proteins with homology to original ECF123 (97.48%) and are present in Actinobacteria (100%). Proteins from ECF123s1 and ECF123s3 contain a C-terminal extension of 20-30 amino acids with no homology to any Pfam domain.
Special features: Position +1 has homology to AS factors from original ECF123. In this position, 73.33% of the encoded proteins contain one transmembrane helix and are most likely the proteins with homology to AS factors.
Genomic context conservation: Members of ECF123s1 and ECF123s2 encoded one or several transmembrane subunits of the succinate dehydrogenases in their genetic context and a FAD-binding domain, also present in ECF123s6.
Promoter motif conservation: The predicted target promoter motifs of ECF123 is not conserved.
Summary: Most of the members of ECF123 have a transmembrane AS factor in +1. The genomic context conservation extends further in ECF123s1, ECF123s2 with functions related to the electron transport chain, pointing out the potential regulatory role of ECF123 on oxidative stress response.
