FunctionFunction unknown
ProductPE family protein. Possible lipase LipX.
CommentsRv1169c, (MTV005.05c), len: 100 aa. Possible lipX, lipase. Member of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis PE family of proteins (see Brennan & Delogu 2002), e.g. O05297|Z93777|MTCI364.07 (99 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 209, E(): 1.6e-15, (37.4% identity in 99 aa overlap). Also simlar to the N-terminus of P77909|U76006 esterase/lipase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis (437 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 193, E(): 4.4e-14, (37.2% identity in 94 aa overlap). Contains a helix-turn-helix motif from aa 88-109 (+2.76 SD). Predicted possible vaccine candidate (See Zvi et al., 2008).
Functional categoryPe/ppe
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).
TranscriptomicsmRNA identified by microarray analysis: transcription up-regulated at low pH in vitro conditions, which may mimic an environmental signal encountered by phagocytosed bacteria (see Fisher et al., 2002), up-regulated at high temperatures (see Stewart et al., 2002), and also up-regulated after 24h of starvation (see Betts et al., 2002).
MutantNon-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
