CommentMembers of this family, part of the succinylglutamate desuccinylase / aspartoacylase family (PF04952), belong to ectoine utilization operons, as found in Sinorhizobium meliloti 1021 (where it the operon is known to be induced by ectoine), Mesorhizobium loti, Silicibacter pomeroyi, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, and Pseudomonas putida.
