General annotation
Gene nameRv3217c
Rv numberRv3217c
ProductProbable conserved integral membrane protein
CommentsRv3217c, (MTCY07D11.09), len: 143 aa. Probable conserved integral membrane protein, equivalent (highly similar but shorter 30 aa) to Q9CCH6|ML0806 putative membrane protein from Mycobacterium leprae (173 aa). Also similar to others e.g. Q9F3L9|2SC7G11.04 putative integral membrane protein from Streptomyces coelicolor (152 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 177, E(): 0.00024, (33.8% identity in 136 aa overlap). And shows similarity to O34238|MVIN|VC0680 virulence factor MVIN homolog from Vibrio (525 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 126, E(): 0.97, (30.9% identity in 68 aa overlap). First GTG taken. A core mycobacterial gene; conserved in mycobacterial strains (See Marmiesse et al., 2004).

TranscriptomeDNA microarrays show increased expression in M. tuberculosis H37Rv in BALB/c mice compared to SCID mice, after 21 days of infection (See Talaat et al., 2004).
Mutationnon essential gene by Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Non-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
