FunctionPolyprenol-phosphate-mannose dependent mannosyltransferase involved in phosphatidylinositol mannoside synthesis
ProductMannosyltransferase PimE
CommentsRv1159, (MTCI65.26), len: 431 aa. PimE, mannosyltransferase (see Morita et al., 2006) Conserved transmembrane protein, similar to others in Mycobacterium tuberculosis e.g. Rv2181|MTCY21D4.13 (560 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 172; E(): 0.00035, (25.0% identity in 332 aa overlap). Belongs to the GT-C superfamily of glycosyltransferases (See Liu and Mushegian, 2003).
Functional categoryCell wall and cell processes
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 30 days but not 90 days (See Kruh et al., 2010). Translational start site supported by proteomics data (See Kelkar 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). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
