General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
CoA-transferase alpha 2 subunit gene
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Rhodococcus equi - RHOE1
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
IpdA2 - CoA-transferase alpha subunit
Biological function
The gene ipdA2 (REQ_00850) is an paralog of idpA of Rhodococcus equi but is localized outside of the cholesterol catabolic gene cluster on the bacterial chromosome. Probably it is the alpha subunit of a heterodimeric coenzyme A transferase. The biological function is not elucidated yet but it was shown that the gene product IpdA2 (GenBank accession CBH46238) acts redundantly to IdpA in the cholesterol catabolism that is important for pathogenicity of R. equi.
