Family

ABC transporter, substrate-binding protein (IPR007487)

Short name: ABC_transpt-bd

Family relationships

None.

Description

ABC transporters belong to the ATP-Binding Cassette (ABC) superfamily, which uses the hydrolysis of ATP to energize diverse biological systems. ABC transporters are minimally constituted of two conserved regions: a highly conserved ATP binding cassette (ABC) and a less conserved transmembrane domain (TMD). These regions can be found on the same protein or on two different ones. Most ABC transporters function as a dimer and therefore are constituted of four domains, two ABC modules and two TMDs.

This family contains many hypothetical proteins and some ABC transporter substrate binding proteins.
