Phosphotransferase system, EIIC component, type 3 (IPR004501)

Short name: PTS_EIIC_3

Domain relationships


This group of proteins consists of both type 3 specific forms of the phosphotransferase system (PTS) IIC component. Type 3 includes lactose, beta-glucoside, cellobiose and chitin disaccharide (N, N'-diacetylchitobiose) transporters [PMID: 22363821]. The IIC domain catalyses the transfer of a phosphoryl group from the IIB domain to the substrate. When the IIC component and IIB components are in the same polypeptide chain they are designated IIBC [PMID: 8246840].
