IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
ABC-type D-allose transporter
Other names:
D-allose transporting ATPase
D-allose ABC transporter
alsBAC (gene names)
Systematic name:
ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, D-allose-importing)



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 interacts with an extracytoplasmic substrate binding protein and mediates the high affinity uptake of D-allose, which can be used by the bacterium as a sole carbon source. Formerly EC
