Functional categorylipid metabolism

ProteomicsIdentified in the membrane fraction of M. tuberculosis H37Rv using 1D-SDS-PAGE and uLC-MS/MS (See Gu et al., 2003). 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 and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate (See de Souza et al., 2011).
TranscriptomeDNA microarrays show higher level of expression in M. tuberculosis H37Rv than in phoP|Rv0757 mutant (See Walters et al., 2006).
MutationNon-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by sequencing of Himar1-based transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011). Found to be deleted (partially or completely) in one or more clinical isolates (See Tsolaki et al., 2004). Check for mutants available at TARGET website
RegulonPredicted to be in the SigE|Rv1221 regulon during macrophage (THP-1) infection (See Fontan et al., 2008).
