GapMind for catabolism of small carbon sources

 

L-rhamnose catabolism in Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough

Best path

rhaT, rhaM, rhaA, rhaB, rhaD, tpi, fucO

Rules

Overview: Rhamnose utilization in GapMind is based on MetaCyc pathway I via L-rhamnulose 1-phosphate aldolase (link), pathway II via 2-keto-3-deoxy-L-rhamnonate aldolase (link), and pathway III via 2,4-diketo-3-deoxyrhamnonate hydrolase (link).

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).
