FunctionFunction unknown
ProductPE-PGRS family protein PE_PGRS17
CommentsRv0978c, (MTV044.06c), len: 331 aa. PE_PGRS17, Member of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis PE family, PGRS subfamily of gly-rich proteins (see citation below), highly similar to others e.g. Z95387|MTCY1A10_19 from Mycobacterium tuberculosis (461 aa), FASTA score: (73.6% identity in 277 aa overlap); etc.
Functional categoryPe/ppe
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 90 days but not 30 days (See Kruh et al., 2010).
TranscriptomicsDNA microarrays detect expression in M. tuberculosis H37Rv in vivo (in BALB/c and SCID mice) but not in vitro (in 7H9 medium) (See Talaat et al., 2004). DNA microarrays show lower level of expression in M. tuberculosis H37Rv during Mg2+ starvation (See Walters et al., 2006).
MutantDisruption of this gene provides a growth advantage 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).
