Superfamily: Restriction endonuclease BsobI, helical domain

This superfamily consists of two long alpha helices joined by some shorter ones. One of the longer helices curves inwards towards DNA, while the other is kinked outwards.

BsobI is made up of this helical domain, and another more compact globular domain (consisting of smaller helices and some beta strand elements).

Within the endonuclease, this helical domain plays a role in DNA binding, so that the globular (catalytic domain) has a higher concentration of localised substrate.
