GapMind for catabolism of small carbon sources

 

N-acetyl-D-glucosamine catabolism in Caulobacter crescentus NA1000

Best path

nagF, nagEcb, nagA, nagB

Also see fitness data for the top candidates

Rules

Overview: N-acetylglucosamine utilization in GapMind is based on MetaCyc pathways N-acetylglucosamine degradation I (link) and pathway II (link). These pathways differ in whether uptake and phosphorylation are performed by a PTS system or performed separately by a transporter and a kinase.

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).

For more information, see the paper from 2019 on GapMind for amino acid biosynthesis, or view the source code.
