FunctionTryptophan biosynthesis pathway (fourth step) [catalytic activity: 1-(2-carboxyphenylamino)-1-deoxy-D-ribulose 5-phosphate = 1-(indol-3-YL)glycerol 3-phosphate + CO(2) + H(2)O.]
ProductProbable indole-3-glycerol phosphate synthase TrpC
CommentsRv1611, (MTCY01B2.03), len: 272 aa. Probable trpC, indole-3-glycerol phosphate synthase. Similar to Q55508|SLR0546 hypothetical 33.0 kDa protein from synechocystis SP (295 aa), FASTA score: opt: 26, E(): 7.6e-32, (44.2% identity in 265 aa overlap); also similar to TRPC_AZOBR|P26938 ndole-3-glycerol-phosphate synthaseindole-3-glycerol-phosphate synthase from Azospirillum brasilense (262 aa), FASTA score: opt: 596, E(): 4.8e-30, (43.8% identity in 258 aa overlap). Equivalent to AL0499 13|MLCB1610_24 from Mycobacterium leprae (272 aa) (90.8% identity in 272 aa overlap). Contains indole-3-glycerol phosphate synthase signature (PS00614). Belongs to the TrpC family.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified in the cell membrane fraction 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). Translational start site supported by proteomics data (See de Souza et al., 2011).
MutantEssential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv in a MtbYM rich medium, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (see Minato et al. 2019). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
