Cation efflux pump FieF (IPR023783)

Short name: Cation_efflux_FieF

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


The ferrous iron efflux (FieF) proteins are members of the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) family of membrane-bound transporters. In addition to their involvement in iron detoxification in Escherichia coli, FieF proteins are also able to transport Zn2+ in a proton-dependent manner [PMID: 15549269].
