Endoribonuclease AbiQ - Q9ZJ19 (ABIQ_LACLL)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q9ZJ19: 1
Toxic component of a type III toxin-antitoxin (TA) system. An endoribonuclease that is probably sequence-specific. It is neutralized by its cognate antitoxin RNA AntiQ, which has 2.8 35 nucleotide-long repeats. Cannot be cloned in L.lactis subsp. cremoris strain NZ9000 in the absence of the antitoxin gene; expression in strain NZ9000 even in the presence of antiQ inhibits growth in a bacteriostatic fashion (PubMed:23279123). Confers resistance to 936 and c2 phages but not P335 phages in L.lactis, causes an abortive infection (Abi phenotype). Viral DNA is replicated but not cleaved from its concatemeric form, while the viral major structural protein is produced normally in the presence of this protein (PubMed:9835558). Operon expression in E.coli confers resistance to 3 phages of the Myoviridae family (T4, RB69 and phage 2) and 1 of the Siphoviridae family (T5), but not other tested phages (T1, T3, lambda vir, HK97, Mu and pilH alpha). The presence of this operon in L.lactis subsp. lactis strain IL1403 during phage P008 infection alters the viral transcription profiles (PubMed:23813728). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
