IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
ABC-type Fe3+ transporter
Other name:
Fe3+-transporting ATPase
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, Fe3+-transporting)



ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains. A bacterial enzyme that interacts with a periplasmic iron-binding protein to imports Fe3+ ions into the cytoplasm. Formerly EC
