IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
ABC-type β-glucan transporter
Other name:
β-glucan-transporting ATPase
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, β-glucan-exporting)



An ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains/proteins and two integral membrane domains/proteins. An enzyme found in Gram-negative bacteria that exports β-glucans. Formerly EC
