General annotation
Gene namesubI
Rv numberRv2400c
FunctionInvolved in the active transport across the membrane of multiple sulfur-containing compounds, including sulfate and thiosulfate (import).
ProductProbable sulfate-binding lipoprotein SubI
CommentsRv2400c, (MTCY253.21), len: 356 aa. Probable subI, sulfate-binding lipoprotein component of sulfate transport system (see citations below), equivalent to Q9CCN3|SUBI|ML0615 (alias Q49748|B1937_F1_11, 358 aa) putative sulphate-binding protein from Mycobacterium leprae (348 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 1775, E(): 2.3e-102, (76.45% identity in 340 aa overlap). Also similar to others and other substrate-binding proteins e.g. P27366|SUBI_SYNP7|SBPA sulfate-binding protein precursor from Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942 (Anacystis nidulans R2) (350 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 703, E(): 4.6e-36, (35.6% identity in 351 aa overlap); Q9I6K7|SBP|PA0283 sulfate-binding protein precursor from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (332 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 591, E(): 3.7e-29, (36.9% identity in 317 aa overlap); CAC49112|SMB21133 putative sulfate uptake ABC transporter periplasmic solute-binding protein precursor from Rhizobium meliloti (Sinorhizobium meliloti) (341 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 569, E(): 8.8e-28, (36.15% identity in 321 aa overlap); etc. Belongs to the prokaryotic sulfate binding protein family.
