This domain is found in members of the ABC transporter family. Proteins containing this domain include:

  • Cell division protein FtsX from Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. It is a component of the septal ring [PMID: 19376877]. It may insert division proteins into the cytoplasmic membrane [PMID: 12370001].
  • Permease protein MacB 1. It is part of the tripartite efflux system MacAB-TolC [PMID: 18955484].
  • Lipoprotein-releasing system transmembrane protein LolC. It is part of an ATP-dependent transport system LolCDE responsible for the release of lipoproteins targeted to the outer membrane from the inner membrane [PMID: 10783239].
  • Putative hemin transport system permease protein HrtB. It may be Part of the ABC transporter complex hrt involved in hemin import [PMID: 16933993].
  • Bacitracin export permease protein BceB. It is art of the ABC transporter complex BceAB (TC 3.A.1.123.5) involved in bacitracin export [PMID: 12890034].
  • ABC transporter permease YtrF. It is part of the ABC transporter complex YtrBCDEF that plays a role in acetoin utilization during stationary phase and sporulation [PMID: 10986249].
  • ABC transporter permease protein YxdM. It is part of the ABC transporter complex YxdLM which could be involved in peptide resistance [PMID: 15870467].
