General annotation
FunctionUnknown. In other organisms, LYTB product is involved in penicillin tolerance and control of the stringent response.
ProductProbable LYTB-related protein LytB2
CommentsRv1110, (MTV017.63), len: 335 aa. Probable lytB2, LytB-related protein, equivalent to AL049491|MLCB1222_3 from Mycobacterium leprae (335 aa), FASTA score: (82.9% identity in 333 aa overlap). Also similar to LytB proteins from many bacteria (appears to have N-terminal extension) e.g. P22565|LYTB_ECOLI|B0029|Z0034|ECS0032 LYTB protein from Escherichia coli strains K12 and O157:H7 (316 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1041, E():0, (52.4% identity in 309 aa overlap); etc. Also very similar to another LytB-related protein from Mycobacterium tuberculosis: LytB1|Rv3382c|MTV004.40c (329 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 975, E(): 0, (51.3% identity in 312 aa overlap). Belongs to the LytB family.
Functional categoryCell wall and cell processes
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in the membrane protein fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011).
MutantEssential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
