Exploring a gene in Escherichia coli
Start in Ensembl Bacteria and search for the Escherichia coli str. K-12 substr. MG1655 (GCA_000005845) genome.
What GO: biological process terms are associated with the Era gene?
How many different InterPro domains are found in the protein product of this gene?
What is the associated UniProt ID of the transcript?
Enter part of the name into the genome search box (e.g.
MG1655) and then select the correct genome to go to the species information page.
Erainto the search box and hit Go. Click the link in the first hit to go to the era gene page. From here, click GO: Biological process in the left-hand menu.
There are three GO IDs: GO:0000028, GO:0006468, GO:0042274 and GO:0046777.
- Click on the transcript ID AAC75619 in the transcript table on the Gene tab. In the Transcript tab, go to Domains & features in the left-hand panel. Count the number of unique InterPro IDs in the table.
11 different InterPro domains are found in the protein product of Era.
- You can find the UniProt ID in the transcript table or under General identifiers in the left-hand panel.
The UniProt ID is P60785.
