General annotation
ProductIsoniazid inductible gene protein IniC
CommentsRv0343, (MTCY13E10.03), len: 493 aa. IniC, isoniazid-inducible gene, (see citations below). Shows slight similarity to P40983|YOR6_THER8 hypothetical protein (402 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 196, E(): 2.6e-05, (25.9% identity in 228 aa overlap). Also some similarity to upstream ORF Rv0342|iniA. Contains (PS00017) ATP/GTP-binding site motif A (P-loop). Note that the iniA gene is also induced by the antibiotic ethambutol, an agent that inhibits cell wall biosynthesis by a mechanism that is distinct from isoniazid.
Functional categoryCell wall and cell processes
ProteomicsIdentified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 1D-SDS-PAGE and uLC-MS/MS (See Gu et al., 2003). Identified in the cytosol and cell membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005). Identified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 30 days but not 90 days (See Kruh et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011).
TranscriptomicsQuantitative PCR shows INH-mediated induction of iniB|Rv0341, iniA|Rv0342 and iniC|Rv0343 is repressed in M. tuberculosis H37Rv overexpressing lsr2|Rv3597c (See Colangeli et al., 2007).
MutantNon-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
