FunctionThought to cause methylation of 23S rRNA
ProductProbable 23S rRNA methyltransferase Erm(37)
CommentsRv1988, (MTCY39.31c), len: 179 aa. Probable erm(37), 23S rRNA methyltransferase, similar to ERME_SACER|P07287 rrna adenine n-6-methyltransferase (370 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 259, E(): 2e-11, (35.1% identity in 171 aa overlap); contains PS00092 N-6 Adenine-specific DNA methylases signature. Also similar to Mycobacterium tuberculosis Rv1010 ksgA 16S rRNA dimethyltransferase. This region is a possible MT-complex-specific genomic island (See Becq et al., 2007).
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified in the cell membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005).
MutantNon-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
