General annotation
FunctionBinds both GDP and GTP. Has an intrinsic GTPase activity and is essential for cell growth.
ProductProbable GTP-binding protein EngA
CommentsRv1713, (MTCI125.35), len: 463 aa. Probable engA, GTP-binding protein. Equivalent to Q49884|MLCB1351.01|U00021_5 probable GTP-binding protein ENGA from Mycobacterium leprae (461 aa), (88.6% identity in 463 aa overlap). And similar to many e.g. P50743|ENGA_BACSU probable GTP-binding protein ENGA from Bacillus subtilus (436 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1077, E(): 0, (40.6% identity in 434 aa overlap). Contains two PS00017 ATP/GTP-binding site motif A (P-loop). Belongs to the era/TRME family of GTP-binding proteins. ENGA subfamily.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified in the cell wall and cell membrane fractions of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005).
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).
