NADH-Ubiquinone oxidoreductase (complex I), chain 5 N-terminal (IPR001516)

Short name: Proton_antipo_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



Mrp-type antiporters comprise the cation/proton antiporter family 3 (CPA3), commonly referred to as Mrp. They are the products of operons that carry either six or seven genes (mrpA-G), and form complexes containing all subunits [PMID: 15980940, PMID: 18408029]. They have Na(+)/H(+) antiporter activity [PMID: 24142251]. Two of the Mrp proteins, MrpA and MrpD, resemble NuoL/ND5, NuoM/ND4, NuoN/ND2, the homologous subunits that constitute the membrane-embedded, proton-translocating core of complex I [PMID: 12914915, PMID: 20826797, PMID: 12460669, PMID: 20595580]. They also resemble subunits of membrane-bound hydrogenases, such as HyfB, HyfD and HyfF from E.coli [PMID: 9387241] and F420H2 dehydrogenasa (FPO complex) subunits L, N and M [PMID: 10751389].

This domain represents an N-terminal extension of IPR001750. It is found in complex I subunit NuoL/ND5, CPA3 antiporters subunit MrpA, and in F(420)H(2) dehydrogenase subunit L. Only NADH-Ubiquinone chain 5 and eubacterial chain L are in this family. This sub-family is part of complex I which catalyses the transfer of two electrons from NADH to ubiquinone in a reaction that is associated with proton translocation across the membrane.
