General annotation
Gene nameacpA
Rv numberRv0033
FunctionKey component in de novo fatty acid biosynthesis. This protein is supposed to be the carrier of the growing fatty acid chain in fatty acid biosynthesis.
ProductProbable acyl carrier protein AcpA (ACP)
CommentsRv0033, (MTCY10H4.33), len: 87 aa. Probable acpA (alternate gene name: acpP), acyl carrier protein, similar to others. Also similar to proteins of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Rv1344 and Rv2244 (31.5% identity in 73 aa overlap).
Molecular mass (Da)9612.96
Isoelectric point4.357
Gene length (bp)264
Protein length87
Location (kb)36.607

Functional categorylipid metabolism

Mutationnon essential gene by Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by sequencing of Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011). Check for mutants available at TARGET website
