IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
ABC-type glutathione transporter
Other names:
glutathione transporting ATPase
glutathione ABC transporter
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type,glutathione-importing)



A prokaryotic ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains/proteins and two integral membrane domains/proteins. The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli is a heterotrimeric complex that interacts with an extracytoplasmic substrate binding protein to mediate the uptake of glutathione.
