PTS system mannose/sorbose specific IIA subunit (IPR033887)

Short name: PTS_IIA_man

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


The bacterial phosphoenolpyruvate: sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS) is a multi-protein system involved in the regulation of a variety of metabolic and transcriptional processes. This family is one of four structurally and functionally distinct group IIA PTS system cytoplasmic enzymes, necessary for the uptake of carbohydrates across the cytoplasmic membrane and their phosphorylation. IIA subunits receive phosphoryl groups from HPr and transfer them to IIB subunits, which in turn phosphorylate the substrate [PMID: 10393270,PMID: 11532441].
