Lon dependent lethality is due to induction of yefM-yoeb toxin/antitoxin pair. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG10542]. Lon is an ATP-dependent protease responsible for degradation of misfolded proteins as well as a number of rapidly degraded regulatory proteins.
lon has several biochemical functions, for example, peptidase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by lon itself. We selected most functions lon had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with lon. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
