GapMind for catabolism of small carbon sources

 

2'-deoxyinosine catabolism in Chromobacterium vaccinii MWU205

Best path

nupC, deoD, deoB, deoC, adh, ackA, pta

Rules

Overview: In the known pathway for deoxyinosine utilization, a phosphorylase forms deoxyribose 1-phosphate, phosphopentomutase forms deoxyribose 5-phosphate, and an aldolase produces 3-phosphoglycerate (an intermediate in glycolysis) and acetaldehyde (link). MetaCyc also describes a purine deoxyribonucleosidase (EC 3.2.2.M2), yielding deoxyribose, but this enzyme has not been linked to sequence, so it is not included in GapMind. This reaction might also occur non-specifically via ribonucleosidases. The fitness data for Paraburkholderia bryophila 376MFSha3.1 does suggest cytoplasmic hydrolysis of purine deoxynucleosides, but did not identify the deoxyribonucleosidase.

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 (a fast alternative to protein BLAST) against a database of manually-curated proteins (most of which are experimentally characterized) or by using HMMer with enzyme models (usually from TIGRFam). 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. For diverse bacteria and archaea that can utilize a carbon source, there is a complete high-confidence catabolic pathway (including a transporter) just 38% of the time, and there is a complete medium-confidence pathway 63% of the time. 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).
