GapMind for catabolism of small carbon sources


Finding step gltJ for L-glutamate catabolism in Escherichia coli BW25113

4 candidates for gltJ: L-glutamate ABC transporter, permease component 1 (gltJ/aatQ)

Score Gene Description Similar to Id. Cov. Bits Other hit Other id. Other bits
hi b0654 glutamate and aspartate transporter subunit (NCBI) Glutamate/aspartate import permease protein GltJ (characterized) 100% 100% 495.4 NatG, component of Acidic and neutral amino acid uptake transporter NatFGH/BgtA. BgtA is shared with BgtAB 32% 120.9
lo b0653 glutamate and aspartate transporter subunit (NCBI) PP1070, component of Acidic amino acid uptake porter, AatJMQP (characterized) 31% 95% 120.9 Glutamate/aspartate import permease protein GltK 100% 431.0
lo b1918 predicted transporter subunit: membrane component of ABC superfamily (NCBI) PP1070, component of Acidic amino acid uptake porter, AatJMQP (characterized) 32% 87% 115.9 L-cystine transport system permease protein YecS 100% 433.7
lo b3269 predicted amino-acid transporter subunit (NCBI) Amino acid ABC transporter membrane protein, component of Amino acid transporter, AatJMQP. Probably transports L-glutamic acid, D-glutamine acid, L-glutamine and N-acetyl L-glutamic acid (Johnson et al. 2008). Very similar to 3.A.1.3.19 of P. putida (characterized) 39% 51% 103.2 ABC transporter for D-Alanine, permease component 2 63% 476.1

Confidence: high confidence medium confidence low confidence
transporter – transporters and PTS systems are shaded because predicting their specificity is particularly challenging.

About GapMind

Each pathway is defined by a set of rules based on individual steps or genes. Candidates for each step are identified by using ublast against a database of manually-curated proteins (most of which are experimentally characterized) or by using HMMer. Ublast hits may be split across two different proteins.

A candidate for a step is "high confidence" if either:

where "other" refers to the best ublast hit to a sequence that is not annotated as performing this step (and is not "ignored").

Otherwise, a candidate is "medium confidence" if either:

Other blast hits with at least 50% coverage are "low confidence."

Steps with no high- or medium-confidence candidates may be considered "gaps." For the typical bacterium that can make all 20 amino acids, there are 1-2 gaps in amino acid biosynthesis pathways. Gaps may be due to:

GapMind relies on the predicted proteins in the genome and does not search the six-frame translation. In most cases, you can search the six-frame translation by clicking on links to Curated BLAST for each step definition (in the per-step page).
