Functional categoryconserved hypotheticals

ProteomicsIdentified 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 of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate or membrane protein fraction (See de Souza et al., 2011).
TranscriptomeDNA microarrays show lower level of expression in M. tuberculosis H37Rv than in phoP|Rv0757 mutant (See Walters et al., 2006).
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). 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
