Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: predicted oxidoreductase

Gene: ygfM Accession Numbers: G7499 (EcoCyc), b2880, ECK2876

Regulation Summary Diagram

Regulation summary diagram for ygfM

Component of: predicted xanthine dehydrogenase (summary available)

YgfM is consistently found in the same location as XdhD in MIRAGE experiments. Thus the two proteins may form a complex, as has been proposed previously [Sevcenco11].

Map Position: [3,018,562 -> 3,019,341] (65.06 centisomes, 234°)
Length: 780 bp / 259 aa

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 28.65 kD (from nucleotide sequence)

Subunit of: predicted xanthine dehydrogenase

Subunit composition of predicted xanthine dehydrogenase = [XdhD][YgfM]
         fused predicted xanthine/hypoxanthine oxidase: molybdopterin-binding subunit and Fe-S binding subunit = XdhD (summary available)
         predicted oxidoreductase = YgfM (summary available)

XdhD and YgfM are predicted to form a complex with xanthine dehydrogenase activity.
