Family relationships


Facilitator of iron transport 2 (Fit2) is one of three cell wall proteins that are regulated by Aft1p, which is the major iron-dependent transcription factor in yeast. Fit2 is involved in the uptake of non-siderophore and siderohpore sources of iron and it has a role in the retention of iron in the cell wall and periplasmic space [PMID: 11673473].
