At least four groups have deleted mraW(yabC): Carrion(1999) found it to be essential for growth; Arigoni(1998) found a reduced growth rate; Dassain(1999) and Merlin(2002) found that the deletion strain grew normally. A possible explanation is that the Carrion et al. mutation might be polar on a downstream essential gene. But this defect would have to be suppressible by MraW overexpression. Carrion(1999) found some protein starting with the second Met which might represent an alternative initiation site. Limiting MAP, when MraW is overproduced, is probably not the explanation since MM- is not a MAP substrate.
