General annotation
Gene nameRv2912c
Rv numberRv2912c
FunctionThought to be involved in transcriptional mechanism.
ProductProbable transcriptional regulatory protein (probably TetR-family)
CommentsRv2912c, (MTCY274.44c), len: 195 aa. Probable transcription regulatory protein, TetR family, showing similarity with others e.g. Q9K3V9|SCD10.17 putative TetR-family transcriptional from Streptomyces coelicolor (202 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 185, E(): 4.4e-05, (31.15% identity in 167 aa overlap); Q9KFQ0 TetR-family from Bacillus halodurans (185 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 164, E(): 0.001, (35.6% identity in 73 aa overlap); P17446|BETI_ECOLI|BETI|B0313 regulatory protein from Escherichia coli strain K12 (195 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 126, E(): 0.024, (24.5% identity in 196 aa overlap); etc. Contains possible helix-turn-helix motif at aa 33-54 (+2.71 SD). Possibly belongs to the TetR/AcrR family.

Functional categoryregulatory proteins

ProteomicsIdentified in the cytosol 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 of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011).
TranscriptomemRNA identified by DNA microarray analysis and up-regulated at high temperatures (see citation below).
Mutationnon essential gene by Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Required for growth in C57BL/6J mouse spleen, by transposon site hybridization (TraSH) in H37Rv (See Sassetti and Rubin, 2003). Check for mutants available at TARGET website
