General annotation
FunctionInvolved in active transport of sugar across the membrane (import). Responsible for energy coupling to the transport system.
ProductProbable sugar-transport ATP-binding protein ABC transporter SugC
CommentsRv1238, (MTV006.10), len: 393 aa. Probable sugC, sugar-transport ATP-binding protein ABC transporter (see citation below). Highly similar to U15180 protein ugpC from Mycobacterium leprae (392 aa), FASTA score: opt: 2007, E(): 0, (79.9% identity in 389 aa overlap). Contains PS00017 ATP/GTP-binding site motif A (P-loop) and PS00211 ABC transporters family signature. Belongs to the ATP-binding transport protein family (ABC transporters).
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 and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate (See de Souza et al., 2011). 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 and CDC1551 strains (see Sassetti et al., 2003 and Lamichhane et al., 2003). Required for growth in C57BL/6J mouse spleen, by transposon site hybridization (TraSH) in H37Rv (See Sassetti and Rubin, 2003). Required for survival in primary murine macrophages, by transposon site hybridization (TraSH) in H37Rv (See Rengarajan et al., 2005). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
