Family

Amino acid transporter, transmembrane (IPR013057)

Short name: AA_transpt_TM

Family relationships

None.

Description

This transmembrane region is found in many amino acid transporters including P34579 (UNC-47) and P40501 (MTR). UNC-47 encodes a vesicular amino butyric acid (GABA) transporter, (VGAT) and is is predicted to have 10 transmembrane domains UNC47_CAEEL [PMID: 9349821]. MTR is an N system amino acid transporter system protein involved in methyltryptophan resistance MTR_NEUCR. Other members of this family include proline transporters and amino acid transporters whose specificity has not yet been identified.
