Family relationships

Description

The Nucleobase Cation Symporter-1 (NCS1) family consists of bacterial and yeast transporters for nucleobases including purines and pyrimidines (http://www.tcdb.org/search/result.php?tc=2.A.39). Members of this family possess twelve putative transmembrane alpha-helical spanners (TMSs). At least some of them have been shown to function in uptake by substrate:H+ symport mechanism.
