Formate/nitrite transporter (IPR000292)

Short name: For/NO2_transpt

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Proteins in this entry belong to the Formate-Nitrite Transporter (FNT) family (TC 2.A.44). The prokaryotic proteins of the FNT family probably function in the transport of the structurally related compounds, formate and nitrite. The homologous yeast protein may function as a short chain aliphatic carboxylate H+ symporter, transporting formate, acetate and propionate, and functioning primarily as an acetate uptake permease.
