ProductProbable dioxygenase
CommentsRv3406, (MTCY78.22c), len: 295 aa. Probable dioxygenase, highly similar to Q9WWU|ATSK putative alpha-ketoglutarate dependent dioxygenase from Pseudomonas putida (301 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 994, E(): 3.9e-57, (53.7% identity in 283 aa overlap); Q9I6U1|PA0193 hypothetical protein from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (300 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1024, E(): 4.4e-59, (53.65% identity in 287 aa overlap); Q9HX81|TAUD|PA3935 taurine dioxygenase from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (277 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 599, E(): 1.4e-31, (39.35% identity in 277 aa overlap); and similar to other dioxygenases e.g. AAG54718|TAUD (alias BAB33845|ECS0422) taurine dioxygenase 2-oxoglutarate-dependent from Escherichia coli strain O157:H7 (283 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 595, E(): 2.5e-31, (38.1% identity in 281 aa overlap); etc. Belongs to the TfdA family of dioxygenases.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified by proteomics at the Statens Serum Institute (Denmark) (See Rosenkrands et al., 2000). Identified 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 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).
