AmpG-like permease/Acetyl-coenzyme A transporter 1 (IPR004752)

Short name: AmpG_permease/AT-1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family consists of AmpG-like permease and acetyl-coenzyme A transporter 1 (AT-1). AT-1 is a probable acetyl-CoA transporter necessary for O-acetylation of gangliosides [PMID: 10570973]. The signal transducer encoded by AmpG is essential for induction of chromosomal AmpC beta-lactamase in Escherichia coli by beta-lactam antibiotics and 'unspecific' inducers [PMID: 7773404]. The AmpG protein probably acts as a permease in the beta-lactamase induction system and in peptidoglycan recycling.
