General annotation
Gene namecyp137
Rv numberRv3685c
FunctionCytochromes P450 are a group of heme-thiolate monooxygenases. They oxidize a variety of structurally unrelated compounds, including steroids, fatty acids, and xenobiotics.
ProductProbable cytochrome P450 137 Cyp137
CommentsRv3685c, (MTV025.033c), len: 476 aa. Probable cyp137, cytochrome P-450, similar to many e.g. Q9VXY0|C4S3_DROME|CYP4S3|CG9081 from Drosophila melanogaster (Fruit fly) (495 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 376, E(): 1.2e-15, (28.35% identity in 413 aa overlap); Q59163|CYP110A2 from Anabaena variabilis (459 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 320, E(): 3.1e-12, (31.4% identity in 411 aa overlap); O23051|C883_ARATH from Arabidopsis thaliana (Mouse-ear cress) (490 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 313, E(): 8.8e-12, (28.25% identity in 425 aa overlap); etc. Also similar to many from Mycobacterium tuberculosis e.g. O53765|C13B_MYCTU|CYP135B1|Rv0568|MT0594|MTV039.06 (472 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 920, E(): 4.6e-49, (36.25% identity in 447 aa overlap); P96813|C138_MYCTU|CYP138|Rv0136|MT0144|MTCI5.10 (441 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 886, E(): 5.3e-47, (35.5% identity in 445 aa overlap); etc. Belongs to the cytochrome P450 family.
