The YjhY novel zinc finger family of unknown function has >20 members in Gram-positive bacteria, but the apparent pseudogene YjhY in E. coli K-12 is the only Gram-negative member so far. Thus it appears likely that YjhY is a lateral transfer. A stop codon at position 30 of E. coli YjhY has been reconstructed with an X.

EcoFam Ortholog Tree of the YjhY Family:
The multiple alignment was created using the EBI Muscle server. The multiple alignment figure was produced using the ESPript server at the Universite de Lyon, France.The neighbor-joining tree was generated and bootstrapped using ClustalX locally. The tree figure was drawn using the Phylodendron server at Indiana University.
