Validation Status Uncharacterized
Organism Information
Organism NameMyxococcus xanthus
Domain Bacteria
Classification Family: Myxococcaceae
Suborder: Cystobacterineae
Order: Myxococcales
Class: Deltaproteobacteria or Deltabacteria
Division or phylum: "Proteobacteria"
Taxonomic ID (NCBI) 34
Genome Information
GenBank AF098938
EMBL AF098938
Protein Information
Protein NameVGP (74 kDa)
Subcellular LocationMembrane (peripheral)
Function Its surface location and abundance suggest that VGP plays a role in vegetative swarming, because it appears primarily during growth of the organism and is lost in the course of development. May play an important role in the social behavior.
Glycosylation Status
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation DetectionPAS-staining and Dolichos lectin affinity binding.
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation Carbohydrate moiety (~13.5% of the weight of the VGP) is primarily comprised of neutral sugars and smaller amounts of hexosamines and uronic acids. Terminal N-acetylgalactosamine residues.
