General annotation
FunctionPossibly involved in transport (possibly arginine)
ProductPossible transport system kinase
CommentsRv1496, (MTCY277.18), len: 334 aa. Possible transport system kinase. Equivalent to NP_302220.1|NC_002677 putative kinase from Mycobacterium leprae (327 aa). Highly similar to several transport system kinases and NTPase transporters e.g. P27254|ARGK_ECOLI|B2918 LAO/AO transport system kinase from Escherichia coli K12 (331 aa) (see citation below); NP_311815.1|NC_002695 ATPase component of two convergent arginine transporter from Escherichia coli O157:H7 (331 aa); etc. Also similar to YPLE_CAUCR|P37895 hypothetical 34.6 kDa protein in Caulobacter crescentus (326 aa), FASTA scores, opt: 1125, E(): 0, (55.7% identity in 316 aa overlap).
Functional categoryCell wall and cell processes
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, 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).
