Rv2949c (Chorismate--pyruvate lyase (EC is predicted to be co-regulated in modules bicluster_0396 with residual 0.50 and bicluster_0490 with residual 0.57.

This regulation is possibly mediated by two de-novo identified cis-regulatory motifs in each module with e-values , 0.01 and 9.30 for bicluster_0396 and 0.01 and 730.00 for bicluster_0490 respectively.

These modules are enriched for following go terms: organic hydroxy compound transport, tetracycline transport, antibiotic transport, toxin transport, drug transport, response to drug, tetracycline transporter activity, drug:hydrogen antiporter activity, tetracycline:hydrogen antiporter activit..., toxin transporter activity, antibiotic transporter activity, organic hydroxy compound transmembrane t..., solute:cation antiporter activity, solute:hydrogen antiporter activity, antiporter activity .

This gene is found to be for growth on cholesterol.

Actinobacterium-type cell wall biogenesis

Actinobacterium-type cell wall biogenesis

A cellular process that results in the biosynthesis of constituent macromolecules, assembly, and arrangement of constituent parts of a cell wall of the type found in Actinobacteria. The cell wall is the rigid or semi-rigid envelope lying outside the cell membrane. Actinobacterial cell walls contain characteristic mycolic acids, of which some are covalently linked to the cell wall peptidoglycan and others accumulate at the cell surface.

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.
