<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Probable methyl-accepting taxis protein. May be the receptor that senses the torque generated from the interaction between the magnetosome dipole moment and the external magnetic field (Probable). Overproduction interferes with magnetotaxis, cells respond more slowly to changes in the magnetic field; requires the MamK-interacting C-terminus of the protein. The effect of magnetic sensing is to control flagellar rotation (PubMed:20471399).1 Publication1 Publication
Chemotactic-signal transducers respond to changes in the concentration of attractants and repellents in the environment, transduce a signal from the outside to the inside of the cell, and facilitate sensory adaptation through variation of methylation levels. Attractants increase the level of methylation while repellents decrease the level of methylation.Curated

Miscellaneous

This bacteria makes up to 20 cubo-octahedral magnetosomes of about 45 nm in diameter which contain membrane-bound crystals of magnetite (Fe3O4).Curated
There are over 60 methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins in this bacterium.1 Publication

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
