    Protein Summary

    Interesting protein - unnanotated, hypothetical protein lpg1979.  Essentially an ORFan - very close homologs present in several Legionella species, more distant ones in some proteobacteroa (Chelativorans sp. BNC1 and Acidovorax sp. CF316) and, interestingly in Trichoderma virens - a fungi! No PFAM, no hits to anything in FFAS etc.

    In Legionella pneumophila lpg1979 is part of an operon with three other uncharacterized proteins and with a protein (lpg1978) annotated as teichoic acid biosynthesis protein. I'm not sure of the origin on this annotation. All I can say about this protein (lpg1978) is that is has a glycosyltransferase sugar-binding domain on the N-terminus.
    The protein is expected to function as a dimer. The N-helix appears to be swapped within the dimer.

    Structural similarity searches dont find any significant similarities if the entire structure is used for searching, but this changes if you can separate the structure into two (not-continuous domains):
    the alpha/beta (residues 100-128 & 260-353) - has a clear ribonuclease-H-like fold (3 layers: a/b/a; mixed beta-sheet of 5 strands, order 32145; strand 2 is antiparallel to the rest):

    green - core a/b domain of lpg1979, red - Tex RuvX-like domain from the  Tex protein from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PDB code 3bkzA). The helical domain (residues 129-260 & 353- C-term) consists of three helical haripins stacked on top of each other (the last one a bit to the side).

    the first three helices are very similar to a spectrin repeat (read on the picture below)



    but I wouldnt read too much from this, its just a helical bundle.
