YehK has no homologs and is polymorphic in E. coli and Shigella strains with many truncated versions and the presence of in frame stop codons. This is an indication that yehK is not really a protein-coding gene and it will likely be removed from EcoGene in the near future. yehK was not originally annotated as a gene (Blattner, 1997) but was added later based on a GeneMark.hmm 2.4 prediction of an atypical protein coding region. An insertion in a version of yehK in EPEC E. coli blocks interference with host functions, but may be affecting the downstream gene yehL (Nadler, 2006).
