ABC transporter periplasmic-binding protein YtfQ (IPR033893)

Short name: ABC_YtfQ

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This entry describes the periplasmic binding protein of ABC-type YtfQ-like transport systems. The YtfQ protein from Escherichia coli is up-regulated under glucose-limited conditions [PMID: 16180237]. YtfQ is the substrate-binding protein encoded in the ytfQRTyjfF operon. It has been shown to bind galactofuranose, revealing a route for carbon scavenging via the utilization of rarer furanose forms of sugars [PMID: 19744923].
