IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


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



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 Escherichai coli interacts with a periplasmic substrate binding protein and mediates the high affinity uptake of D-galactofuranose. The periplasmic binding protein exhibits selective binding of D-galactofuranose over D-galactopyranose. Formerly EC
