ProductPPE family protein PPE59
CommentsRv3429, (MTCY77.01), len: 178 aa. PPE59, Member of the M. tuberculosis PPE family, similar to many e.g. the upstream Q50703|YY25_MYCTU|Rv3425|MTCY78.04c (176 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 781, E(): 1.9e-44, (69.9% identity in 176 aa overlap); and Q50702|YY26_MYCTU|Rv3426|MTCY78.03c (232 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 555, E(): 1.7e-29, (72.0% identity in 125 aa overlap) (but diverges at 3' end); etc.
Functional categoryPe/ppe
TranscriptomicsDNA microarrays show lower level of expression in M. tuberculosis H37Rv than in phoP|Rv0757 mutant (See Walters et al., 2006).
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).
