Bacterial glucose/galactose transporter (IPR005964)

Short name: Glc/Gal_transptr_bac

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This model describes the glucose/galactose transporter in bacteria. Putative transporters in bacterial species have been isolated by functional complementation, which restored its functional activity. These two transporters are members of the major facilitator superfamily, FHS, in which they represent a previously undescribed family [PMID: 9168605].
