Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: toxic peptide IbsC



Gene: ibsC Accession Numbers: G0-10631 (EcoCyc), b4665, ECK4480

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Summary:
The small open reading frame IbsC was detected by similarity to the open reading frames encoded on the opposite strand of the sib small RNAs [Fozo08]. It was later found that overexpression of a SibC antisense RNA suppresses cell growth, which can be attributed to the production of the toxic peptide IbsC [Mok09].

Overexpression of IbsC is toxic to the cell by disrupting membrane integrity. Whole-genome gene expression analysis after induction of IsbC expression shows changes in expression of many stress response and membrane proteins [Fozo08].

IbsC: "induction brings stasis" [Fozo08]

Map Position: [3,054,912 <- 3,054,971] (65.84 centisomes)
Length: 60 bp / 19 aa

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 2.209 kD (from nucleotide sequence)
