Hypothetical proteins are functionally uncharacterized proteins with assigned function using sequence annotation tools. Almost half of the coding regions of several genomes are hypothetical proteins. Therefore, it is of our interest to characterize a hypothetical protein YVRE from the model system Bacillus subtilis using known data. Read More
