General description: This group has homology to the original group ECF28 (91.24%), and it is present in Proteobacteria from class Proteobacteria (99.34%) from class Gammaproteobacteria and Cyanobacteria (0.66%).
Genomic context conservation: Other conserved proteins encoded in the genetic context of members of ECF28 are a thiolase (ECF28s1 and ECF28s2), an outer membrane protein transport protein (OMPP1/FadL/TodX) (ECF28s1 and ECF28s2) involved in degradation of aromatic hydrocarbons (Pfam: Toluene_X), a 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (ECF28s2) and a von Willebrand factor type A (ECF28s1 and ECF28s2).
Promoter motif conservation: The predicted target promoter motifs are not conserved.
Summary: Likewise original ECF28 (Staroń et al., 2009), ECF28 might be regulated by a membrane-bound AS factor with a DUF3379. The conservation of the genetic context of members of ECF28 indicates that they are involved in the degradation of aromatic compounds.
