General annotation
Gene namehisC1
Rv numberRv1600
FunctionHistidine biosynthesis (eighth step) [catalytic activity: L-histidinol-phosphate + 2-oxoglutarate = 3-(imidazol-4-YL)-2-oxopropyl phosphate + L-glutamate]
ProductProbable histidinol-phosphate aminotransferase HisC1
CommentsRv1600, (MTCY336.04c), len: 380 aa. Probable hisC1, histidinol-phosphate aminotransferase O06591. Similar to many e.g. HIS8_STRCO|P16246 from Streptomyces coelicolor (369 aa), FASTA results: opt: 1353, E(): 0, (59.0% identity in 356 aa overlap). Some similarity to other Mycobacterium tuberculosis aminotransferases e.g. Rv3772|MTCY13D12.06, FASTA results: E(): 7.4e-25, (33.7% identity in 365 aa overlap). Contains aminotransferases class-II pyridoxal-phosphate attachment site (PS00599). Belongs to class-II of pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferases. Note that previously known as hisC.

Functional categoryintermediary metabolism and respiration

ProteomicsIdentified in the cell wall and cell membrane fractions of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 2DLC/MS (See Mawuenyega et al., 2005). Identified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in the membrane protein fraction and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate (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). Check for mutants available at TARGET website
