Pathways & interactions
MSF-type transporter, YcaD (IPR023745)
Short name: MFS_YcaD
Overlapping homologous superfamilies
- MFS transporter superfamily (IPR036259)
- Major facilitator superfamily (IPR011701)
- MSF-type transporter, YcaD (IPR023745)
Among the different families of transporter, only two occur ubiquitously in all classifications of organisms. These are the ATP-Binding Cassette (ABC) superfamily and the Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS). The MFS transporters are single-polypeptide secondary carriers capable only of transporting small solutes in response to chemiosmotic ion gradients [PMID: 9529885, PMID: 9868370].
This entry represents the uncharacterised major facilitator superfamily protein YcaD from enterobacteria.
