Bunzi

Contributors: Aude Bernheim

Description

The Bunzi system is composed of 2 proteins: BnzB and, BnzA. Bunzi is a serpent water spirit and goddess of rain in the traditional Kongo religion. There was some homology noted with PFAMS Pfam08000, Pfam05099, Pfam07889 and a TerB domain () .

Molecular Mechanism

As far as we are aware, the molecular mechanism is unknown.

Example of genomic structure

The Bunzi is composed of 2 proteins: BnzA and BnzB.

Here is an example found in the RefSeq database:

The Bunzi system in Shewanella loihica (GCF_000016065.1, NC_009092) is composed of 2 proteins BnzB (WP_011866821.1) BnzA (WP_011866822.1)

Distribution of the system among prokaryotes

Among the 22,803 complete genomes of RefSeq, the Bunzi is detected in 103 genomes (0.45 %).

The system was detected in 58 different species.

Proportion of genome encoding the Bunzi system for the 14 phyla with more than 50 genomes in the RefSeq database.
