GapMind for catabolism of small carbon sources


Definition of 2'-deoxyinosine catabolism

As text, or see rules and steps

# 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 (metacyc:PWY-7179-1).
# 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.

# These proteins are reported to transport inosine, and likely transport deoxyinosine as well.
# The specificity of E. coli nupX (P33021, also known as yeiJ) seems to be unknown.

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.
