Magnesium transporter, MgtE intracellular domain (IPR006668)

Short name: Mg_transptr_MgtE_intracell_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This domain is found at the N terminus of eubacterial magnesium transporters of the MgtE family IPR006667. This domain is an intracellular domain that has an alpha-helical structure. The crystal structure of the MgtE transporter [PMID: 17700703] shows two of 5 magnesium ions are in the interface between the N domain and the CBS domains. In the absence of magnesium there is a large shift between the N and CBS domains.
