Oxalate/formate antiporter (IPR026355)

Short name: Oxa/Form_antiport

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry represents a subfamily of the Major Facilitator transporter family. Family members include the known oxalate/formate antiporter of Oxalobacter formigenes, as well as transporter subunits co-clustered with the two genes of a system that decarboxylates oxalate into formate. In many of these cassettes, two subunits are found rather than one, suggesting the antiporter is sometimes homodimeric, sometimes heterodimeric.
