IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
monosaccharide-transporting ATPase
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (monosaccharide-importing)



ABC-type (ATP-binding cassette-type) ATPase, characterised by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains. Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process. Family of bacterial enzymes importing ribose, xylose, arabinose, galactose and methylgalactoside.
