Depositor Comments

The SspB used in this construct contains two amino acid mutations that disrupt the natural dimerization of SspB. These mutations are Y11K and A15E (residue numbering from pdb code 1ou9). Here is the sequence around the mutated residues with the sites of mutation in parentheses: SSPKRP(K)LLR(E)YYDWLVDNS
