Amino acid exporter protein, LeuE-type (IPR001123)

Short name: LeuE-type

Family relationships


A number of amino acid exporter proteins belong to this family. LeuE encodes an exporter of leucine and some other structurally unrelated amino acids [PMID: 16098526]. This family also includes threonine efflux protein RhtC [PMID: 10386596], arginine exporter protein ArgO/YggA [PMID: 15150242], as well as a number of uncharacterised proteins from a variety of sources.
