Resuscitation-promoting factor RpfB - P9WG29 (RPFB_MYCTU)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for P9WG29: 5
Factor that stimulates resuscitation of dormant cells. Has peptidoglycan (PG) hydrolytic activity. Active in the pM concentration range. Has little to no effect on actively-growing cells. PG fragments could either directly activate the resuscitation pathway of dormant bacteria or serve as a substrate for endogenous Rpf, resulting in low molecular weight products with resuscitation activity. (data source: UniProt  )
Reduces lag phase and enhances the growth of quiescent (1 month-old culture) M.tuberculosis; works best between 8 and 128 pM. Increases the number of bacteria that can be recovered from a 3 month-old culture. Stimulates growth of stationary phase M.bovis (a slowly-growing Mycobacterium) as well as M.smegmatis cells (a fast grower). Binds N,N',N''-triacetylchitotriose (tri-NAG). A fragment (residues 194-362) hydrolyzes an artificial lysozyme substrate 4-methylumbelliferyl-beta-D-N,N',N''-triacetylchitotrioside (MUF tri-NAG). By itself has little activity on cell wall, in combination with RipA is active against cell wall extracts from a number of Actinobacteria; this activity is inhibited by PBP1A (ponA1). Sequential gene disruption indicates RpfB and RpfE are higher than RpfD and RpfC in functional hierarchy. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal
