Borrelia burgdorferi Gene-Protein index
|Borrelia burgdorferi, B. garinii and B. afzelii genes grouped by function|
These data are an update of those reviewed by:
Baranton,G. & Old,I.G. (1995) The Spirochaetes: a different way of life. Bull. Inst. Pasteur. 93: 63-95
The tables are based on the E. coli index:
The annotations are in the following format:
#Riley,M. (1993) Functions of the gene products of Escherichia coli. Microbiol. Rev. 57: 862-952.
Gene Gene Product (Enzyme number) References (if no sequence in bank)
B. burgdorferi 212 Map Location (kbp) Link to Sequence (if available)
B. garinii 20047 Map Location (kbp) Link to Sequence (if available)
B. afzelii VS461 Map Location (kbp) Link to Sequence (if available)
Distribution of cellular functions of E. coli and B. burgdorferi genes
nd not determined; c chromosome; lp linear plasmid; cp circular plasmid
bmpA = tmbC = p39
dnaK = hsp70
flaB = fla = p41
ftsQ = divIB
gap = G3PDH
groEL = hsp60
hip = himD
pep = APEI
p60 = "PCR"
sod = sodA = sodM
Many chromosomal genes were mapped in B. burgdorferi strain 212, B. garinii strain 20047 and B. afzelii strain VS461.
Additionally, hip & recA, were mapped in B. burgdorferi (Sh-2-82) while p22A, parC, priA and LA7 were mapped for several Borrelia species
