med AO353_12330 peptide ABC transporter ATP-binding protein Glutamine ABC transporter ATP-binding protein, component of Glutamine transporter, GlnQP. Takes up glutamine, asparagine and glutamate which compete for each other for binding both substrate and the transmembrane protein constituent of the system (Fulyani et al. 2015). Tandem substrate binding domains (SBDs) differ in substrate specificity and affinity, allowing cells to efficiently accumulate different amino acids via a single ABC transporter. Analysis revealed the roles of individual residues in determining the substrate affinity (characterized) 60% 97% 281.2 Glutamine transport ATP-binding protein GlnQ; EC 7.4.2.- 62% 284.3

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).
