General annotation
FunctionThought to be involved in transport of arsenic across the membrane (export): arsenic resistance by an export mechanism. Form the channel of an arsenite pump responsible for the translocation of the substrate across the membrane.
ProductPossible arsenical pump integral membrane protein ArsB2
CommentsRv3578, (MTCY06G11.25), len: 413 aa. Possible arsB2, arsenical pump integral membrane protein, similar to many e.g. Q9I1J6|ARSB|PA2278 from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (427 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 375, E(): 3.1e-15, (32.15% identity in 429 aa overlap); Q9K8K7|ARSB|BH2999 from Bacillus halodurans (436 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 360, E(): 2.5e-14, (28.7% identity in 432 aa overlap); P52146|ARB2_ECOLI from Escherichia coli (plasmid R46) (429 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 345, E(): 2e-13, (29.8% identity in 426 aa overlap); etc. Also highly similar to Q9KYM0|SC9H11.21c probable membrane efflux protein from Streptomyces coelicolor (446 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 730, E(): 1.7e-36, (53.95% identity in 443 aa overlap). Seems to belong to the ARS family.
