CommentsRv3242c, (MTCY20B11.17c), len: 213 aa. Conserved hypothetical protein, highly similar in N-terminus to Q9CCI9|ML0776 hypothetical protein from Mycobacterium leprae (85 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 324, E(): 1.7e-13, (78.1% identity in 64 aa overlap). Also similar to Q9RUJ7|DR1389 putative competence protein COMF from Deinococcus radiodurans (219 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 223, E(): 6.3e-07, (35.8% identity in 215 aa overlap); BAB50338|MLL3453 hypothetical protein from Rhizobium loti (Mesorhizobium loti) (240 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 218, E(): 1.4e-06, (28.5% identity in 224 aa overlap); Q9A9Y1|CC0830 competence protein F from Caulobacter crescentus (265 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 182, E(): 0.00026, (30.15% identity in 219 aa overlap); etc. Equivalent to AAK47682 from Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain CDC1551 (241 aa) but shorter 29 aa. Contains purine/pyrimidine phosphoribosyl transferases signature (PS00103). Seems to belong to purine/pyrimidine phosphoribosyl transferase family.

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 and CDC1551 strains (see Sassetti et al., 2003 and Lamichhane et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
