General annotation
Gene namehisB
Rv numberRv1601
FunctionHistidine biosynthesis (seventh step) [catalytic activity: D-erythro-1-(imidazol-4-YL)glycerol 3- phosphate = 3-(imidazol-4-YL)-2-oxopropyl phosphate + H(2)O]
ProductProbable imidazole glycerol-phosphate dehydratase HisB
CommentsRv1601, (MTCY336.03c), len: 210 aa. Probable hisB, imidazole glycerol-phosphate dehydratase. Similar to many e.g. HIS7_STRCO|P16247 from Streptomyces coelicolor (197 aa),FASTA results: opt: 763, E(): 0, (57.4% identity in 202 aa overlap). Belongs to the imidazoleglycerol-phosphate dehydratase family.

Functional categoryintermediary metabolism and respiration

ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or 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). Check for mutants available at TARGET website
