General annotation
Gene nameRv3216
Rv numberRv3216
TypeCDS (pseudogene)
FunctionAcetylation, substrate unknown
ProductGCN5-related N-acetyltransferase, pseudogene
CommentsRv3216, (MTCY07D11.10c), len: 160 aa. Acetyltransferase (2.3.1.-), contains GNAT domain (Gcn5-related N-acetyltransferase. See Vetting et al. 2005), probably pseudogene as appears frameshifted due to 1bp insertion at position 3593438. Frameshift present in all sequenced tubercle bacilli. Start changed since first submission, extended by 50aa. Similar to many acetyltransferases e.g. Q9AB32|CC0402 acetyltransferase (GNAT family) from Caulobacter crescentus (159 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 325, E(): 3.8e-17, (45.65% identity in 103 aa overlap); P79081|ATS1 putative acetyltransferase ATS1 from Schizosaccharomyces pombe (Fission yeast) (168 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 313, E(): 3.1e-16, (47.6% identity in 105 aa overlap).
