Definition of 2-deoxy-D-ribose catabolism

As rules and steps, or see full text

Rules

Overview: Deoxyribose utilization in GapMind is based on MetaCyc pathways 2-deoxy-D-ribose degradation I via deoxyribose 5-phosphate aldolase (link) and pathway II via oxidation to 2-deoxy-3-dehydro-D-ribonate (link).

Steps

deoP: deoxyribose transporter

deoK: deoxyribokinase

deoC: deoxyribose-5-phosphate aldolase

ald-dh-CoA: acetaldehyde dehydrogenase, acylating

adh: acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (not acylating)

acs: acetyl-CoA synthetase, AMP-forming

ackA: acetate kinase

pta: phosphate acetyltransferase

drdehyd-alpha: 2-deoxy-D-ribose dehydrogenase, alpha subunit

drdehyd-beta: 2-deoxy-D-ribose dehydrogenase, beta subunit

drdehyd-cytc: 2-deoxyribose-D dehydrogenase, cytochrome c component

atoA: acetoacetyl-CoA transferase, A subunit

atoD: acetoacetyl-CoA transferase, B subunit

aacS: acetoacetyl-CoA synthetase

atoB: acetyl-CoA C-acetyltransferase

deoxyribonate-dehyd: 2-deoxy-D-ribonate 3-dehydrogenase

ketodeoxyribonate-cleavage: 2-deoxy-3-keto-D-ribonate cleavage enzyme

garK: glycerate 2-kinase

deoxyribonate-transport: 2-deoxy-D-ribonate transporter

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).
