SSB binds to RecQ and stimulates DNA unwinding (Shereda, 2007). LexA regulon. The RecQ domain protein Psyr_3804 from Pseudomonas syringae has been identified as a toxin with the Smf domain protein Psyr_3805 as the antitoxin, although there is no indication that the E. coli RecQ/Smf form a toxin-antitoxin pair (Sberro, 2013).
