This feature is part of a subsystem
  • In Archaeal lipids its role is (S)-3-O-geranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate synthase.
  • In CBSS-393121.3.peg.1913 its role is (S)-3-O-geranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate synthase.
  • Reasons for Current Assignment

    We have assigned the function "Geranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate synthase-like protein YerE" to the encoded protein. The protein occurs in 1 subsystem: "Archaeal lipids". In "Archaeal lipids", it appears to play a functional role that we have not associated with any other gene. The function of genes having the same functional roles have been described in Thermoplasma acidophilum (12801917), Bacillus subtilis (9701819) and Methanothermobacter thermautotrophicus (11732904). These are homologous proteins which implement the same function.

    Compare Regions For fig|196620.1.peg.1847

    The chromosomal region of the focus gene (top) is compared with four similar organisms. The graphic is centered on the focus gene, which is red and numbered 1. Sets of genes with similar sequence are grouped with the same number and color. Genes whose relative position is conserved in at least four other species are functionally coupled and share gray background boxes. The size of the region and the number of genomes may be reset. Click on any arrow in the display to refocus the comparison on that gene. The focus gene always points to the right, even if it is located on the minus strand.
