In the present paper, we report that a Cdc6 (cell-division control)-like factor from the hyperthermophilic crenarchaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus (referred to as SsoCdc6-2) has a modular organization of its biological functions. A reliable model of the SsoCdc6-2 three-dimensional structure was built up, based on the significant sequence identity with the Pyrobaculum aerophylum Cdc6 (PaeCdc6), whose crystallographic structure is known. This allowed us to design two truncated forms of SsoCdc6-2… CONTINUE READING
