FunctionPossibly involved in molybdopterin metabolism (synthesis)
ProductProbable molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis protein MoeB1 (MPT-synthase sulfurylase) (molybdopterin synthase sulphurylase)
CommentsRv3206c, (MTCY07D11.20), len: 392 aa. Probable moeB1, molybdopterin cofactor biosynthesis protein, equivalent to Q9CCG8|MOEZ|ML0817 protein probably involved in molybdopterin biosynthesis from Mycobacterium leprae (395 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 2285, E(): 3.3e-130, (86.45% identity in 391 aa overlap.) Very similar to members of the HESA/MOEB/THIF family e.g. Q9FCL0|2SC3B6.02 putative sulfurylase from Streptomyces coelicolor (392 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1776, E(): 1.4e-99, (65.3% identity in 395 aa overlap); Q9XC37|PDTORFF MOEB-like protein (putative sulfurylase) from Pseudomonas stutzeri (Pseudomonas perfectomarina) (391 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1526, E(): 1.5e-84, (59.1% identity in 391 aa overlap); O54307|MPT|MOEB MPT-synthase sulfurylase from Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942 (Anacystis nidulans R2) (391 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1309, E(): 1.8e-71, (52.95% identity in 387 aa overlap); P74344|MOEB|SLL1536 molybdopterin biosynthesis MOEB protein from Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803 (392 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1308, E(): 2e-71, (50.65% identity in 397 aa overlap); etc. Also highly similar to O05792|MOEB2|Rv3116|MTCY164.26 putative molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis protein from Mycobacterium tuberculosis (389 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1440, E(): 2.3e-79, (57.25% identity in 386 aa overlap). Has hydrophobic segment from ~45-71. Belongs to the HesA/MoeB/ThiF FAMILY. Note that previously known as moeZ. Thought to be differentially expressed within host cells (see citation below).
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011). Translational start site supported by proteomics data (See Kelkar et al., 2011).
TranscriptomicsmRNA identified by DNA microarray analysis and up-regulated at high temperatures (see Stewart et al., 2002).
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).
