General annotation
Gene namehisD
Rv numberRv1599
FunctionInvolved in histidine biosynthesis pathway (tenth step). This protein is considered as a bifunctional enzyme, possessing two active sites, one an alcohol dehydrogenase and the other an aldehyde dehydrogenase [catalytic activity: L-histidinol + 2 NAD(+) + H(2)O = L-histidine + 2 NADH].
ProductProbable histidinol dehydrogenase HisD (HDH)
CommentsRv1599, (MTCY336.05c), len: 438 aa. Probable hisD, histidinol dehydrogenase (see citation below) O08396. Similar to many e.g. HISX_MYCSM|P28736 from Mycobacterium smegmatis (445 aa), FASTA results: opt: 2356, E(): 0, (83.1% identity in 437 aa overlap). Contains histidinol dehydrogenase signature (PS00611).
Molecular mass (Da)45346.2
Isoelectric point4.6346
Gene length (bp)1317
Protein length438
Location (kb)1799.58

Functional categoryintermediary metabolism and respiration

ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in the culture filtrate and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011).
Mutationessential gene by Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by sequencing of Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
