FunctionFunction unknown, but supposedly involved in lipid metabolism
ProductProbable non lipolytic carboxylesterase NlhH
CommentsRv1399c, (MTCY21B4.16c), len: 319 aa. Possible nlhH, non lipolytic carboxylesterase, most similar to G695278 lipase like enzyme from Ralstonia eutropha (364 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 648, E(): 4.4e-34, (37.3% identity in 327 aa ov erlap), similar to Mycobacterium tuberculosis hypothetical lipases e.g. Rv2284, Rv2485c, Rv1426c, etc. Previously known as lipH.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (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 in a MtbYM rich medium, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (see Minato et al. 2019). Non-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). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
