Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the ‘correct annotation’ for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>
-Experimental evidence at protein leveli <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein.

<p>This section provides any useful information about the protein, mostly biological knowledge.<p><a href='/help/function_section' target='_top'>More...</a></p>Functioni

Involved in the phagosome maturation block (PMB). Catalyzes the conversion of a double bond to a cyclopropane ring at the proximal position of an alpha mycolic acid via the transfer of a methylene group from S-adenosyl-L-methionine. It can use cis, cis 11,14-eicosadienoic acid and linoelaidic acid as substrate. Cyclopropanated mycolic acids are key factors participating in cell envelope permeability, host immunomodulation and persistence.2 Publications
