General annotation
Gene namelipU
Rv numberRv1076
FunctionHydrolyses lipids
ProductPossible lipase LipU
CommentsRv1076, (MTV017.29), len: 297 aa. Possible lipU, lipase, very similar to several Mycobacterium tuberculosis proteins e.g. Z95390|Rv3487c|MTCY13E12.41c (277 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1225, E(): 0, (76.0% identity in 246 aa overlap); Rv1426c, etc. Also similar to esterases and lipases of around 300 aa e.g. Q44087 esterase precursor from Acinetobacter lwoffii esterase (303), FASTA scores: opt: 427, E(): 1.9e-21, (32.5% identity in 280 aa overlap). Equivalent to AL035159|MLCB1450 _7 Mycobacterium leprae (335 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1588, E(): 0, (79.7% identity in 296 aa overlap).
