IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
ABC-type D-xylose/L-arabinose transporter
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, D-xylose/L-arabinose-importing)



ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter with a 10-transmembrane-spanning (TMD) subunit and a single nucleotide binding domain. The enzyme from the archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius interacts with an extracytoplasmic sugar-binding protein and mediates the uptake of of D-xylose and L-arabinose (cf. EC, ABC-type D-xylose transporter and EC, ABC-type L-arabinose transporter).
