<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome.

Autolysins are cell wall hydrolases involved in some important biological processes such as cell separation, cell-wall turnover, competence for genetic transformation, formation of the flagella - in particular of its basal body - and sporulation. Has a high affinity for teichoic acid-endowed peptidoglycan. LytC is required for efficient swarming motility but not at the level of cell separation or flagellum biosynthesis. Rather, LytC appears to be important for proper flagellar function.2 Publications

Inactivation of this gene leads to an approximately 90% decrease in the total cell wall hydrolytic activity of stationary-phase cells and extraordinary resistance to cell lysis, even after 6 days of incubation at 37 degrees Celsius. Cells from domesticated laboratory strains lacking this gene show no motility changes on swarm plates; however in combination with an acetylglucosaminidase deletion (lytD, AC P39848) greatly reduced motility is seen. They also show no apparent changes in cell morphology, competence, sporulation, or germination. Cells from an undomesticated strain (3610) lacking this gene show a reduction in the rate of swarming motility.3 Publications

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence.
