EamA domain (IPR000620)

Short name: EamA_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



EamA (named after the O-acetyl-serine/cysteine export gene in E. coli) domain is found in a wide range of proteins including the Erwinia chrysanthemi PecM protein, which is involved in pectinase, cellulase and blue pigment regulation, the Salmonella typhimurium PagO protein (function unknown), and some members of the solute carrier family group 35 (SLC35) nucleoside-sugar transporters. Many members of this family are classed as drug/metabolite transporters and have no known function. They are predicted to be integral membrane proteins and many of the proteins contain two copies of this domain [PMID: 11432728].
