General annotation
FunctionFunction unknown; probably involved in cellular metabolism.
ProductPossible oxidoreductase
CommentsRv1856c, (MTCY359.17), len: 225 aa. Possible oxidoreductase. Equivalent to MLCB1788.11c|AL008609 oxidoreductase from Mycobacterium leprae (224 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1211, E(): 0; (80.4% identity in 224 aa overlap). Some similarity to dehydrogenases of short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase family and fatty-acyl CoA reductases e.g. P16543|DHK2_STRVN granaticin polyketide synthase P (249 aa), FASTA score: opt: 194, E(): 1.1e-05, (32.5% identity in 237 aa overlap).
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsThe product of this CDS corresponds to spot 3_416 identified by proteomics at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, Berlin, Germany (See Mattow et al., 2001). Identified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 1D-SDS-PAGE and uLC-MS/MS (See Gu et al., 2003). 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).
MutantDisruption of this gene provides a growth advantage 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). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
