ProductPutative ESAT-6 like protein EsxN (ESAT-6 like protein 5)
CommentsRv1793, (MT1842, MTV049.15), len: 94 aa. EsxN, ESAT-6 like protein (see citation below), almost identical to several mycobacterial proteins of the ESAT-6-like family including P95242|Rv2346c|MTCY98.15C|Z83860 putative ESAT-6 like protein 6 (94 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 610, E(): 0, (97.9 % identity in 94 aa overlap); Rv3619c, Rv1037c, and Rv1198, etc. Also present in Mycobacterium leprae. Seems to belong to the ESAT6 family. Predicted possible vaccine candidate (See Zvi et al., 2008).
Functional categoryCell wall and cell processes
ProteomicsIdentified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 1D-SDS-PAGE and uLC-MS/MS (See Gu et al., 2003). Identified in the culture supernatant of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using mass spectrometry (See Mattow et al., 2003). Identified in culture filtrates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2007). Identified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010).
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 and CDC1551 strains (see Sassetti et al., 2003 and Lamichhane et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
