FunctionThought to be involved in the transport of lipids, it has been shown to be required in the production of a sulfated glycolipid, sulfolipid-1 (SL-1).
ProductConserved integral membrane transport protein MmpL8
CommentsRv3823c, (MTCY409.07), len: 1089 aa. mmpL8, conserved integral membrane transport protein (see Tekaia et al., 1999), member of RND superfamily, equivalent to Q49619|MMLA_MYCLE|MMPL10|TP1|ML1231|B1170_C1_181 putative membrane protein from Mycobacterium leprae (1008 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 2718, E(): 7.3e-149, (56.25% identity in 1028 aa overlap). Also similar to others e.g. Q9XCF6|TMTPC from Mycobacterium avium (974 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 660, E(): 2.7e-30, (28.2% identity in 1050 aa overlap); Q9XCF5|TMTPB from Mycobacterium avium (963 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 653, E(): 6.7e-30, (27.0% identity in 1014 aa overlap); Q9KH53|TMTPC from Mycobacterium smegmatis (994 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 648, E(): 1.3e-29, (28.45% identity in 1013 aa overlap); etc. Also highly similar to other mmpL proteins from Mycobacterium tuberculosis; O50439|MMLA_MYCTU|MMPL10|RV1183|MT1220|MTV005.19 (1002 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 2777, E(): 2.9e-152, (58.25% identity in 996 aa overlap); Q50585|MMLC_MYCTU|MMPL12|Rv1522c|MT1573|MTCY19G5.06 (1146 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 2433, E(): 2.1e-132, (49.9% identity in 1050 aa overlap); and similar to others e.g. P95235|MML9_MYCTU|MMPL9|Rv2339|MT2402|MTCY98.08 (962 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 651, E(): 8.8e-30, (28.6% identity in 1038 aa overlap); etc. Belongs to the MmpL family.
Functional categoryCell wall and cell processes
ProteomicsIdentified in the cytosol of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005). Identified by mass spectrometry in M. tuberculosis H37Rv-infected guinea pig lungs at 30 days but not 90 days (See Kruh et al., 2010).
TranscriptomicsmRNA identified by microarray analysis and down-regulated after 24h of starvation (see Betts et al., 2002). DNA microarrays and qRT-PCR show higher 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). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
