Product a serine protease, periplasmic, endoprotease
|a serine protease, periplasmic, endoprotease|
DegP and DegQ form dodecamers, large oligomeric complex typical of intracellular proteases. See also DegP protease. DegS and YaeL cleave RseA, allowing activation of sigmaE response to protein misfolding.
