BamD is comprised of five TPR (tetratricopeptide) repeats, the last four of which are involved in protein-protein interactions (Gatsos, 2008; Albrecht, 2011). BamD is homologous to N. gonorrhoeae competence protein ComL. The first 19 aa of BamD are a type II signal peptide. ybgF and bamD are distant paralogs. otherPDB(R. marinus):3QKY (Sandoval, 2011).
