General annotation
FunctionCatalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group from ATP to either CMP or dCMP to form CDP or dCDP and ADP [catalytic activity: ATP + CMP = ADP + CDP].
ProductCytidylate kinase Cmk (CMP kinase) (cytidine monophosphate kinase) (ck)
CommentsRv1712, (MTCI125.34), len: 230 aa. cmk, cytidylate kinase, highly similar to many e.g. KCY_ECOLI|P23863 cytidylate kinase from Escherichia coli (227 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 534, E (): 0, (40.3% identity in 221 aa overlap). Contains PS00017 ATP/GTP-binding site motif A (P-loop). Equivalent to Z95117|MLCB1351_2 from Mycobacterium leprae (223 aa) (73.5% identity in 226 aa overlap). Belongs to the cytidylate kinase family, subfamily 1.
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).
MutantDisruption of this gene results in growth defect of H37Rv in vitro, 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).
