Gene Feature Overview

Strain Burkholderia thailandensis E264; ATCC 700388
Locus Tag
NCBI Locus TagBTH_RS01375
Synonym: vrgG-6
Replicon chromosome II
Genomic location 326364 - 328559 (+ strand)
Transposon Mutants 4 transposon mutants in E264; ATCC 700388
CommentThis gene is part of cluster known as the type VI secretion system gene cluster tss-6 based on naming convention used for B. pseudomallei described in PMID:17660433, however unlike B. pseudomallei, the numbers following the vgrG and hcp gene match the cluster number (PMID:20865170).
