CommentThis family of proteins are members of the GntR family (PF00392) containing an N-terminal helix-turn-helix (HTH) motif. This clade is found adjacent to or inside of operons for the degradation of 2-aminoethylphosphonate (AEP) in Salmonella [1], Vibrio Aeromonas hydrophila, Hahella chejuensis and Psychromonas ingrahamii.
