yfaQ is in the yfaATSQP operon encoding the variant bacterial alpha2-macroglobulin family protein YfaS, leading to a prediction that YfaT is also involved in host defenses, possibly in the extracellular environment (Budd, 2004). The first 19 aa of YfaQ are predicted to be a type I signal peptide. YfaQ is tandem COG5445 protein with two DUF2300 domain as well as at least one domain related to SpoIID, an amidase that is a cell wall hydrolase.
