FunctionInvolved in the biogenesis of the hydroxyphenyloxazoline-containing siderophore mycobactins.
ProductPolyketide synthetase MbtC (polyketide synthase)
CommentsRv2382c, (MTCY22H8.03), len: 444 aa. MbtC, polyketide synthase (see citations below), similar in part to several synthases e.g. Q9F7T9 avermectin polyketide synthase (fragment) from Streptomyces avermitilis (3626 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1458, E(): 7e-82, (50.65% identity in 446 aa overlap); AAG23264|SPNA polyketide synthase loading and extender module 1 from Saccharopolyspora spinosa (2595 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 1441, E(): 6e-81, (49.1% identity in 446 aa overlap); O33954|TYLG tylactone synthase starter module and modules 1 & 2 from Streptomyces fradiae (4472 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 1439, E(): 1.2e-80, (51.0% identity in 447 aa overlap); O30764|NIDA1 polyketide synthase modules 1 and 2 from Streptomyces caelestis (4340 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 1432, E(): 3.3e-80, (50.9% identity in 442 aa overlap); etc.
Functional categoryLipid metabolism
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 30 days but not 90 days (See Kruh et al., 2010).
TranscriptomicsDNA microarrays indicate repression by iron and IdeR|Rv2711 in M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Rodriguez et al., 2002).
MutantNon-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).
