Homologous Superfamily

Cation efflux transmembrane domain superfamily (IPR027469)

Short name: Cation_efflux_TMD_sf

Description

The cation diffusion facilitator family (CDF) have members in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, several of which have been shown to transport cobalt, cadmium and/or zinc. CDF transporters share a common two-modular architecture, consisting of a transmembrane domain (TMD) followed by a C-terminal domain (CTD) protruding into the cytoplasm [PMID: 9075641].

This superfamily represents the CDF N-terminal transmembrane domain.
