ProductPossible lysophospholipase
CommentsRv0183, (MTCI28.23), len: 279 aa. Possible lysophospholipase, similar to several (especially eukaryotic enzymes, weaker with Escherichia coli), e.g. U67963|HSU67963_1 Human lysophospholipase homolog from Homo sapiens (313 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 569, E(): 2.6e-29, (37.1% identity in 259 aa overlap); P07000|PLDB_ECOLI lysophospholipase L2 from Escherichia coli (165 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 219, E(): 0.00012. Start changed based on similarity to AE001997_8 from Deinococcus radiodurans (282 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 510, E(): 1.4e-25, (34.8% identity in 282 aa overlap). Also shows some similarity to epoxide hydrolases from Mycobacterium tuberculosis e.g. Rv1938 FASTA score: (30.7% identity in 114 aa overlap); and O07214|YR15_MYCTU|Rv2715|MT2788|MTCY05A6.36 (341 aa).
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsThe product of this CDS corresponds to spot 3_329 identified in culture supernatant by proteomics at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, Berlin, Germany, and the Statens Serum Institute (Denmark) (see citations below). Identified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 1D-SDS-PAGE and uLC-MS/MS (See Gu et al., 2003). Identified in the culture supernatant of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using mass spectrometry (See Mattow et al., 2003). Identified in the cell wall and cell membrane fractions of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005). Identified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 90 days but not 30 days (See Kruh et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in the membrane protein fraction and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate (See de Souza et al., 2011).
MutantNon-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv in a MtbYM rich medium, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (see Minato et al. 2019). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Non essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
