Gene Feature Overview

Strain Burkholderia thailandensis E264 ATCC 700388
Locus Tag
NCBI Locus TagBTH_RS09650
Replicon chromosome II
Genomic location 2282208 - 2285702 (- 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-4 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).
