Genome Property Definition Page

Namebacillithiol utilization
DescriptionThis property describes the guild of proteins dependent on bacillithiol in microbial genomes.Bacillithiol, a thiol analog of glutathione and mycothiol, is a 398-Da alpha-anomeric glycoside of L-cysteinyl-D-glucosamine with L-malic acid. A separate property (GenProp0927) describes the biosynthesis of bacillithiol.
Parent PropertyGenProp0075: protein modification, prosthetic groups and cofactors
