General annotation
FunctionThe glycine cleavage system catalyses the degradation of glycine. The H protein shuttles the methylamine group of glycine from the P protein to the T protein
ProductProbable glycine cleavage system H protein GcvH
CommentsRv1826, (MTCY1A11.17c), len: 134 aa. Probable gcvH, glycine cleavage system H protein, highly similar to GCSH_ECOLI|P23884 glycine cleavage system H protein from Escherichia coli (129 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 428, E(): 2.2e-22, (47.8% identity in 134 aa overlap). Equivalent to MLCB1788.37c gcvH from Mycobacterium leprae (78.4% identity in 134 aa overlap). Contains PS00189 2-oxo acid dehydrogenases acyltransferase component lipoyl binding site. Belongs to the GcvH family.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsTranslational start site supported by proteomics data (See Kelkar et al., 2011).
OperonRv1826 and Rv1827 are co-transcribed, by RT-PCR (see Roback et al., 2007).
MutantEssential 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 strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
