<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>

Acyltransferase; part of the gene cluster that mediates the biosynthesis of monakolin K, also known as lovastatin, and which acts as a potent competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase (PubMed:18578535). Monakolin K biosynthesis is performed in two stages (PubMed:19693441). The first stage is catalyzed by the nonaketide synthase mokA, which belongs to type I polyketide synthases and catalyzes the iterative nine-step formation of the polyketide (PubMed:18578535, PubMed:19693441). This PKS stage is completed by the action of dehydrogenase mokE, which catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of the unsaturated tetra-, penta- and heptaketide intermediates that arise during the mokA-mediated biosynthesis of the nonaketide chain and leads to dihydromonacolin L (PubMed:19693441). Covalently bound dihydromonacolin L is released from mokA by the mokD esterase (By similarity). Conversion of dihydromonacolin L into monacolin L and then monacolin J is subsequently performed with the participation of molecular oxygen and P450 monoogygenase mokC (PubMed:19693441). Finally, mokF performs the conversion of monacoline J to monacoline K through the addition of the side-chain diketide moiety (2R)-2-methylbutanoate produced by the diketide synthase mokB (PubMed:19693441).2 PublicationsBy similarity

<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. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:i7976C0F5C03C0349
