Rv2733c (tRNA-i(6)A37 methylthiotransferase) is predicted to be co-regulated in modules bicluster_0020 with residual 0.58 and bicluster_0056 with residual 0.52.

This regulation is possibly mediated by two de-novo identified cis-regulatory motifs in each module with e-values , 7.00 and 27,000.00 for bicluster_0020 and 0.11 and 16,000.00 for bicluster_0056 respectively.

These modules are enriched for following go terms: NADP binding oxidoreductase activity, acting on a sul..., helicase activity, oxidoreductase activity, acting on a sul....

This gene is found to be for growth on cholesterol.

catalytic activity

catalytic activity

Catalysis of a biochemical reaction at physiological temperatures. In biologically catalyzed reactions, the reactants are known as substrates, and the catalysts are naturally occurring macromolecular substances known as enzymes. Enzymes possess specific binding sites for substrates, and are usually composed wholly or largely of protein, but RNA that has catalytic activity (ribozyme) is often also regarded as enzymatic.

How essentiality calculations were done?

The relative representation of each mutant was determined by calculating the fold change (sequence reads/insertion in cholesterol divided by sequence reads/insertion in glycerol) for each gene. Statistical significance was determined by t-test. Each insertion site in each replicate sample was treated as a separate data point. The hyperbola used for defining genes specifically required for growth in cholesterol was defined by the formula, y = 3.8/x+0.7. Genes above this line are annotated as required for growth on cholesterol.

TRIP log2 fold abundance change

reports the log2 abundance fold change of each TFI strain, relative to no induction, in absence or presence of drug, averaged across experimental replicates. Also reported are the accompanying z-scores and two-sided t-test p-values for each TFI strain under each condition. Please refer to Ma et al., 2020, Nature Microbiology for more information.
