FunctionInvolved in molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis: involved in the biosynthesis of a demolybdo-cofactor (molybdopterin), necessary for molybdo-enzymes.
ProductProbable molybdopterin biosynthesis protein MoeA1
CommentsRv0994, (MTCI237.08), len: 426 aa. Probable moeA1, molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis protein, equivalent to AL035500|MLCL373_23 putative molybdopterin biosynthesis protein from Mycobacterium leprae (424 aa), FASTA score: (88.3% identity in 426 aa overlap). Also highly similar to many e.g. CAB59677.1|AL132674 molybdopterin biosynthesis protein from Streptomyces coelicolor (424 aa); NP_385769.1|NC_003047 probable molybdopterin biosynthesis protein from Sinorhizobium meliloti (406 aa); P12281|MOEA_ECOLI molybdopterin biosynthesis moea protein from Escherichia coli (411 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 519, E(): 1.3e-24, (32.3% identity in 402 aa overlap); etc. Also similar to MOEA2|Rv0438c|MTV037.02c probable molybdopterin biosynthesis protein from Mycobacterium tuberculosis (405 aa). Note that previously known as moeA.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified 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 90 days but not 30 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).
MutantNon-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). Required for survival in primary murine macrophages, by transposon site hybridization (TraSH) in H37Rv (See Rengarajan et al., 2005). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
