M. tuberculosis Rv3263 Knockout

ABSTRACT: We determine gene expression profile for the knockout of Rv3263 (DNA Methyltransferase) and compared to wildtype M. tuberculosis. Two RNA-Seq datasets are included: wildtype (H37Rv_SS1) and knockout (delta_Rv3263)

ORGANISM(S): Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv

DNA methylation regulates gene expression in many organisms. In eukaryotes, DNA methylation is associated with gene repression, while it exerts both activating and repressive effects in the Proteobacteria through largely locus-specific mechanisms. Here, we identify a critical DNA methyltransferase in M. tuberculosis, which we term MamA. MamA creates N⁶-methyladenine in a six base pair recognition sequence present in approximately 2,000 copies on each strand of the genome. Loss of MamA reduces th  ...[more]
