General annotation
Gene nameRv3760
Rv numberRv3760
ProductPossible conserved membrane protein
CommentsRv3760, (MTV025.108), len: 100 aa. Possible conserved membrane protein, equivalent to Q50094|ML2366|MLCB12.11c putative membrane protein from Mycobacterium leprae (113 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 423, E(): 1.2e-20, (67.7% identity in 99 aa overlap). Also similar with Q9JST1|NMA2149 putative inner membrane hypothetical protein from Neisseria meningitidis (serogroup A) (104 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 113, E(): 0.95, (33.85% identity in 62 aa overlap); and showing similarity with Q9ZAX7 ABC transporter membrane protein subunit from Streptococcus mutans (498 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 108, E(): 6.7, (42.35% identity in 85 aa overlap) (similarity at C-terminus); and P33108|SECY_MICLU preprotein translocase SECY subunit from Micrococcus luteus (Micrococcus lysodeikticus) (436 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 106, E(): 8.2, (29.05% identity in 86 aa overlap). Equivalent to AAK48231 from Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain CDC1551 (117 aa) but shorter 17 aa.

Functional categorycell wall and cell processes

ProteomicsPredicted transmembrane protein - identified in culture filtrates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv; signal peptide predicted (See Malen et al., 2007). Identified by mass spectrometry in whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011).
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
RegulonChIP-chip indicates SigF|Rv3286c binds to the intergenic upstream region (See Rodrigue et al., 2007).
