FlmA-FlmB toxin-antitoxin system

The FlmA-FlmB toxin-antitoxin system consists of FlmB RNA, a family of non-coding RNAs and the protein toxin FlmA. The FlmB RNA transcript is 100 nucleotides in length and is homologous to sok RNA from the hok/sok system and fulfills the identical function as a post-segregational killing (PSK) mechanism.
