*Target (protein/gene name): 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase / fabG1
*NCBI Gene # or RefSeq#: 886551
*Protein ID (NP or XP #) or Wolbachia#: NP_215999.1
*Organism (including strain): Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv
Etiologic Risk Group (see link below): Risk Group 3
*Background/Disease Information (sort of like the Intro to your Mini Research Write up):
Tuberculosis is a potentially fatal disease that is caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In the past, tuberculosis was the leading cause of death in the United States. Although this is no longer the case due to vaccinations and immunizations, the threat of tuberculosis is still a reality. African-Americans, pregnant women, and internal travelers are all at higher risks to contracting tuberculosis based on statistical data. Complications with eradicating tuberculosis include the development of drug-resistance from poor quality drugs or people not completing treatment. Tuberculosis can also stay inactive in the body and become activated causing the normal symptoms of tuberculosis to arise. This has been termed latent tuberculosis infection. [1]

Current Inhibitors: 14 in the species Plasmodium falciparum but none in Mycobacterium tuberculosis on The Binding Database
Expression Information (has it been expressed in bacterial cells): Yes, in E. coli [6]
Purification Method: Column Chromatography - "Induced recombinant bacteria were washed with cold 50 mM potassium phosphate buffer pH 7±8 (buffer A), and resuspended in 4 ml of the same buffer supplemented with 500 mM NaCl and 5 mMimidazole. Cells were broken by one freezing}thawing cycle at®70 °C, in the presence of protease inhibitors [aprotinin, soybean trypsininhibitor, TLCK (N-p-tosyl-lysine chloromethyl ketone), pepstatin, leupeptin and PMSF] and 0±5 mg lysozyme ml−". Nucleic acids were removed by DNase I (5 lg ml−") and RNase A (10 lg ml−") treatments in the presence of MgCl# (10 mM) at 4 °C for 15 min. After centrifugation at 44000 g for 15 min, the supernatant supplemented with 10% (v}v) glycerol was applied to a Ni-NTA Agarose (Qiagen) column (0±5 ml bed volume). After extensive washes by 5 mM then 50 mM imidazole in buffer A supplemented with 500 mM NaCl, MabA was eluted with 175 mM imidazole in buffer A supplemented with 500 mM NaCl. Fractions containing the His-tagged MabA (H-MabA) were identi®ed by SDS-PAGE, pooled, dialysed twice against 50 vols 50% (v}v) glycerol in 50 mM potassium phosphate buffer, pH 7±2, and stored at ®20 °C." (Same paper as expression linked above). [6]
