General annotation
FunctionInvolved in glycogen biosynthesis (first step) [catalytic activity:ATP + alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate = diphosphate + ADP-glucose].
ProductGlucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase GlgC (ADP-glucose synthase) (ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase)
CommentsRv1213, (MTCI364.25), len: 404 aa. glgC, glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase, similar to many e.g. GLGC_ECOLI|P00584 Escherichia coli (430 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1075, E(): 0, (40.3% identity in 407 aa overlap); highly similar to Q49961 GLGC from Mycobacterium leprae (419 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 2532, E(): 0, (92.6% identity in 404 aa overlap). Belongs to the bacterial and plants glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase family.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified in the cytosol of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005). Identified 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 and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate (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 and CDC1551 strains (see Sassetti et al., 2003 and Lamichhane et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011). M. tuberculosis H37Rv glgC|Rv1213 mutant produces less glucan and glycogen; growth in BALB/c mice is comparable to wild-type (See Sambou et al., 2008).
