Family

Intrinsic membrane protein family, PufX (IPR020169)

Short name: Intrinsic_membrane_PufX

Family relationships

None.

Description

PufX organises RC-LH1, the photosynthesis reaction centre-light harvesting complex 1 core complex of Rhodobacter sphaeroides [PMID: 17161397]. It also facilitates the exchange of quinol for quinone between the reaction centre and cytochrome bc(1) complexes. In organic solvent, PufX contains two hydrophobic helices which are flanked by unstructured regions and connected by a helical bend [PMID: 17161397].
