MetaCyc Polypeptide: phenolphthiocerol synthesis polyketide synthase type I

Gene: pks15/1 Accession Number: G-15015 (MetaCyc)

Species: Mycobacterium bovis

Phenolphthiocerol is a crucial virulence factor of pathogenic mycobacteria. There is an accumulation of glycosylated p-hydroxybenzoic acid methyl esters and a deficiency in the production of phenolphthiocerol in mycobacterial strains mutant for pks15/1 which codes for phenolphthiocerol synthesis polyketide synthase type I [Constant02]. It catalyzes the elongation of p-hydroxybenzoic acid to form p-hydroxyphenylalkanoate intermediates in the phenolphthiocerol biosynthetic pathway which has yet to be fully elucidated.

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 218.3 kD (from nucleotide sequence)
