Short name: ABC_transp_permease

Family relationships


This is a large family mainly comprising high-affinity branched-chain amino acid transporter proteins such as Escherichia coli LivH P08340 and LivM P22729 both of which are form the LIV-I transport system [PMID: 2195019]. Also found with in this family are proteins from the galactose transport system permease [PMID: 1719366] and a ribose transport system [PMID: 7921236].
