LPS export ABC transporter, ATP-binding protein LptB (IPR030921)

Short name: LPS_export_LptB

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) transport across the periplasmic space and its assembly at the Escherichia coli cell surface is carried out by a complex of seven Lpt proteins spanning the inner membrane (LptBCFG), the periplasm (LptA), and the outer membrane (LptDE). Members of this family are LptB, the ATP-binding cassette protein of the ABC transporter complex LptBFG involved in lipopolysaccharide export [PMID: 17056748, PMID: 23292770].
