Experimental data consistent with IMG annotation?

Comment2


MA0154

(350 aa)

Biotin synthase

No

Revised annotation is to pyrrolysine biosynthesis protein

MA0246

(422 aa)

4-Hydroxybenzoate decarboxylase

No

Revised annotation is 3-octaprenyl-4-hydroxybenzoate carboxylyase

MA0940

(183 aa)

Conserved hypothetical

-

Revised annotation is alpha-ribazole-5’-phosphate phosphatase and experimental data is consistent with this

MA2498

(196 aa)

Fumarate hydratase

Yes

Revised annotation is fumarate hydratase/tartrate dehydratase but experimental data is only consistent with the former

MA3520

(412 aa)

Glycine hydroxymethyl-transferase

Yes

No change in annotation

MA3706

(184 aa)

Ham1 protein/nucleotide triphosphatase

Yes

No change in annotation

MA4265

(342 aa)

Isocitrate/ isopropylmalate dehydrogenase family protein

Partially

Revised annotation is isocitrate/ isopropylmalate dehydrogenase but the experimental data is only consistent with the former


1 Obtained from the DOE Integrated Microbial Genomes database (http://img.jgi.doe.gov/ webcite); 2 Revised annotations were based on comparison with the updated annotations in M. burtonii[13] as described in the text.
