FunctionFunction unknown, but involved in lipid degradation [catalytic activity: 2 acetyl-CoA = CoA + acetoacetyl-CoA].
ProductProbable acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase FadA5 (acetoacetyl-CoA thiolase)
CommentsRv3546, (MTCY03C7.10c), len: 391 aa. Probable fadA5, acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase, similar to many e.g. Q9AA29|CC0779 from Caulobacter crescentus (390 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 999, E(): 7.1e-54, (43.5% identity in 400 aa overlap); Q9K783|BH3487 from Bacillus halodurans (393 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 843, E(): 2.6e-44, (37.45% identity in 398 aa overlap); Q9RRK9|DR2480 from Deinococcus radiodurans (399 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 826, E(): 2.8e-43, (38.15% identity in 396 aa overlap); P45369|THIL_CHRVI|PHBA from Chromatium vinosum (394 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 790, E(): 4.5e-41, (39.4% identity in 401 aa overlap); etc. Contains PS00737 Thiolases signature 2. Belongs to the thiolase family.
Functional categoryLipid metabolism
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in the culture filtrate, membrane protein fraction, and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See de Souza et al., 2011). Translational start site supported by proteomics data (See de Souza et al., 2011) (See Kelkar et al., 2011).
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 strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, but essential for in vitro growth on cholesterol; by sequencing of Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
