IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
lipopolysaccharide-transporting ATPase
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (lipopolysaccharide-exporting)



ABC-type (ATP-binding cassette-type) ATPase, characterised by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains. Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process. Enzymes of Gram-negative bacteria that export lipo-oligosaccharides and lipopolysaccharides.
