ProductProbable fatty-acid-CoA ligase FadD18 (fragment) (fatty-acid-CoA synthetase) (fatty-acid-CoA synthase)
CommentsRv3513c, (MTV023.20c), len: 218 aa (Start uncertain). Probable fadD18, fatty-acid-CoA synthetase (C-terminal fragment), almost identical to C-terminal end of downstream O53560|FADD19|Rv3515c|MTV023.22c, probably result of partial gene duplication. Also similar at the C-terminus to other fatty-acid-CoA synthetases e.g. Q9EXL2|FADD from Streptomyces griseus (540 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 586, E(): 1.2e-28, (52.45% identity in 185 aa overlap); AAB87139|MIG medium chain acyl-CoA synthetase precursor from Mycobacterium avium (550 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 506, E(): 9.5e-24, (50.0% identity in 150 aa overlap); Q9A7C3|CC1801 putative 4-coumarate--CoA ligase from Caulobacter crescentus (561 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 430, E(): 4.4e-19, (45.75% identity in 153 aa overlap); Q9KDT0|BH1131 acid-CoA ligase from Bacillus halodurans (546 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 338, E(): 1.9e-13, (38.05% identity in 142 aa overlap); Q9RTR4|DR1692 long-chain fatty acid--CoA ligase from Deinococcus radiodurans (584 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 331, E(): 5.3e-13, (35.15% identity in 145 aa overlap); etc.

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