IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
ABC-type D-xylose transporter
Other names:
D-xylose transporting ATPase
D-xylose ABC transporter
xylFGH (gene names)
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, D-xylose-transporting)



ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains/proteins and two integral membrane domains/proteins. A bacterial enzyme that interacts with an extracytoplasmic substrate binding protein and mediates the high affinity uptake of D-xylose. Formerly EC
