Family

Branched-chain amino acid transport system II carrier protein (IPR004685)

Short name: Brnchd-chn_aa_trnsp_Livcs

Family relationships

None.

Description

Characterised members of the branched chain Amino Acid:Cation Symporter (LIVCS) family transport all three of the branched chain aliphatic amino acids (leucine (L), isoleucine (I) and valine (V)) [PMID: 8544834]. They function by a Na+ or H+ symport mechanism and display 12 putative transmembrane helical spanners.
