Protein

Cardiolipin synthase A

Gene

clsA

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the reversible phosphatidyl group transfer from one phosphatidylglycerol molecule to another to form cardiolipin (CL) (diphosphatidylglycerol) and glycerol.UniRule annotation2 Publications

Miscellaneous

All three cardiolipin synthases (ClsA, ClsB and ClsC) contribute to CL synthesis in stationary phase. Only ClsA contributes to synthesis during logarithmic growth phase.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

2 Phosphatidylglycerol = diphosphatidylglycerol + glycerol.UniRule annotation1 Publication

pH dependencei

Optimum pH is 7.0.1 Publication

Pathology & Biotechi

Disruption phenotypei

Mutants have increased sensitivity to novobiocin. Triple deletion of clsA, clsB and clsC results in a complete lack of cardiolipin, regardless of growth phase or growth conditions.2 Publications

Mutagenesis

Feature keyPosition(s)DescriptionActionsGraphical viewLength
Mutagenesisi2 – 60Missing : Remains membrane associated and retains in vitro and in vivo activity. 1 PublicationAdd BLAST59
Mutagenesisi7 – 8LV → SS: Retains in vitro activity, but loses most of its in vivo activity. Higher apparent molecular mass than wild-type protein. 1 Publication2
Mutagenesisi30 – 32KRR → TTT: Undergoes altered post-translational processing and has much lower in vivo and in vitro activity. 1 Publication3
Mutagenesisi59G → A: Does not affect CL synthase processing or activity. 1 Publication1
