Phosphate permease (IPR004738)

Short name: Phos_permease

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


In yeast the high-affinity transporter for external inorganic phosphate is not essential since a constitutive, low-affinity transporter exists. The induction of the yeast protein is depressed by phosphate starvation.
