Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsThe product of this CDS corresponds to spot 2_25 identified by proteomics at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, Berlin, Germany (See Mattow et al., 2001). Identified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 1D-SDS-PAGE and uLC-MS/MS (See Gu et al., 2003). Identified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in the culture filtrate, membrane protein fraction, and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See de Souza et al., 2011).
TranscriptomicsRT-PCR shows increased expression in M. tuberculosis H37Rv grown in anaerobic non-replicating conditions (See Saxena et al., 2008).
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 CDC1551 strain (see Lamichhane et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
