General annotation
FunctionPossibly catalyzes the oxidative deamination: oxidize on primary amines, and perhaps on secondary and tertiary amines [catalytic activity: RCH(2)NH(2) + H(2)O + O(2) = RCHO + NH(3) + H(2)O(2)]. Must have important function in metabolism. Supposedly involved in stationary-phase survival.
ProductProbable flavin-containing monoamine oxidase AofH (amine oxidase) (MAO)
CommentsRv3170, (MT3259, MTV014.14), len: 448 aa. Probable aofH, flavin-containing (mono)amine oxidase, equivalent to a predicted homologous protein from Mycobacterium smegmatis (see citation below), and similar to many eukaryotic monoamine oxidases e.g. P49253|AOF_ONCMY from Oncorhynchus mykiss (Rainbow trout) (Salmo gairdneri) (522 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 869, E(): 5.3e-44, (37.7% identity in 448 aa overlap); P21396|AOFA_RAT|MAOA from Rattus norvegicus (Rat) (526 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 839, E(): 3.2e-42, (37.45% identity in 446 aa overlap); Q99NA8|MAO-a from Cavia porcellus (Guinea pig) (506 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 836, E(): 4.6e-42, (37.0% identity in 446 aa overlap); P21398|AOFA_BOVIN from Bos taurus (Bovine) (527 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 806, E(): 2.8e-40, (37.0% identity in 446 aa overlap); P21397|AOFA_HUMAN (527 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 801, E(): 5.6e-40, (37.2% identity in 446 aa overlap); etc. Alternative start possible at position 3538487. Belongs to the flavin monoamine oxidase family. Cofactor: FAD (potential).
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified in the cytosol and cell membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005). 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).
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 CDC1551 strain (see Lamichhane et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
