ProGP ID ProGP57
Validation Status Uncharacterized
Organism Information
Organism NameMycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv
Domain Bacteria
Classification Family: Mycobacteriaceae
Suborder: Corynebacterineae
Order: Actinomycetales
Subclass: Actinobacteridae
Class: Actinobacteria
Division or phylum: "Actinobacteria"
Genome Sequence(s)
Organism Additional Information It is the causative agent of human tuberculosis. The pathogenesis is influenced by its lipoglycans and glycolipids (having a wide range of immunomodulatory activities), and a variety of its virulence factors and antigens.
Protein Information
Protein Name38 kDa antigen
Function It is a disease associated species-specific antigen that displays high immunogenicity at B- and T-cell levels. Two epitopes namely a carbohydrate-dependent and a carbohydrate-independent, have been identified on this antigen using TB71 and TB72 monoclonal antibodies. Owing to its highly specific recognition of patients with lung tuberculosis and its nonreactivity with normal sera, it has a great potential for the serological diagnosis of tuberculosis.
Glycosylation Status
Glycosylation Type Information currently not available with us.
Glycosite Sequence Logo
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation DetectionSchiff's reagent staining, peroxidase-conjugated concanavalin A (ConA)-binding
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation 25.7% carbohydrate estimated by phenol-sulfuric acid assay.
