ProductConserved protein
CommentsRv3627c, (MTCY15C10.25), len: 461 aa. Conserved ala-rich protein which may have cleavable signal peptide at N-terminal end. Equivalent to O69539|MLCB2548.20c|ML0211 hypothetical 47.2 KDA protein from Mycobacterium leprae (461 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 2295, E(): 3.5e-116, (76.2% identity in 462 aa overlap); and C-terminal end shows similarity with O05758|MLCB5.28c hypothetical 24.1 KDA protein from Mycobacterium leprae (225 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 268, E(): 1.8e-07, (32.25% identity in 220 aa overlap). Also similar (or with similarity) to various proteins (notably penicillin binding proteins) e.g. Q9X8I8|SCE9.15c hypothetical 45.9 KDA protein from Streptomyces coelicolor (459 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 707, E(): 8.3e-31, (35.75% identity in 439 aa overlap); Q9Z541|SC9B2.18c putative carboxypeptidase from Streptomyces coelicolor (451 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 450, E(): 5.3e-17, (31.75% identity in 469 aa overlap); Q9JVV4|NMA0665 putative peptidase from Neisseria meningitidis (serogroup A) (or Q9JY10|NMB1797 from serogroup B) (469 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 269, E(): 3e-07, (26.15% identity in 463 aa overlap); O85665|PBP3 penicillin binding protein 3 from Neisseria gonorrhoeae (469 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 265, E(): 4.9e-07, (31.85% identity in 201 aa overlap); P45161|PBP4_HAEIN|DACB|HI1330 penicillin-binding protein 4 precursor/peptidase (479 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 230, E(): 3.8e-05, (27.9% identity in 394 aa overlap); P24228|PBP4_ECOLI|DACB|B3182 penicillin-binding protein 4 precursor from Escherichia coli strain K12 (477 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 166, E(): 0.1, (28.2% identity in 408 aa overlap); etc. Predicted to be an outer membrane protein (See Song et al., 2008).
Functional categoryConserved hypotheticals
ProteomicsIdentified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using nanoLC-MS/MS (See Xiong et al., 2005). Predicted secreted protein - identified in culture filtrates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv; signal peptide predicted (See Malen et al., 2007). Identified 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).
MutantDisruption of this gene results in growth defect of H37Rv in vitro, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
