GapMind for catabolism of small carbon sources


Finding step Ac3H11_2554 for L-histidine catabolism in Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough

3 candidates for Ac3H11_2554: ABC transporter for L-Histidine, permease component 2

Score Gene Description Similar to Id. Cov. Bits Other hit Other id. Other bits
med DVU0106 glutamine ABC transporter, permease protein ABC transporter for L-Histidine, permease component 1 (characterized) 43% 98% 175.3 Glutamine transport system permease protein GlnP aka B0810, component of Three component ABC L-glutamine porter. The basal ATPase activity (ATP hydrolysis in the absence of substrate) is mainly caused by the docking of the closed-unliganded state of GlnH onto the transporter domain of GlnPQ. Unlike glutamine, arginine binds both GlnH domains, but does not trigger their closing. Comparison of the ATPase activity in nanodiscs with glutamine transport in proteoliposomes suggested that the stoichiometry of ATP per substrate is close to two 56% 227.6

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).
