    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • cells are bent and distended due to the lack of glucolipids [Pubmed|27684739]
  • the inactivation of ''[gene|70412A747D1ED3E885126945DF02503667C13E5B|pgcA]'' suppresses the poor and filamentous growth of the ''[gene|1986DB3078FBA16D6ACCD70EEAC95C46564D0958|whiA] [gene|EAD44AA7D72510B70308FD0C9F159DBEDAEBBB74|zapA]'' double mutant [Pubmed|24097947]
  • inactivation of ''[gene|70412A747D1ED3E885126945DF02503667C13E5B|pgcA]'' reduces sporulation efficiency to 0.1% that of wild type cells; smaller and wider mother cells with small forespores [Pubmed|26735940]
  • resistant to phage SPO1 [pubmed|30811056]
  • The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • Alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate = alpha-D-glucose 6-phosphate (according to Swiss-Prot)
  • Protein family

  • phosphohexose mutase family [pubmed|15238632]
  • Modification

  • phosphorylated on ser/ thr/ tyr [Pubmed|16493705], [Pubmed|17726680]
