Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


ABC transporter 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, ribose and fructose transport system permeases [PMID: 1719366, PMID: 7921236, PMID: 11466273].
