Maltose/maltodextrin transport system permease protein MalF-like (IPR030156)

Short name: MalF-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



The maltose/maltodextrin transport system of Escherichia coli/Salmonella consists of the periplasmic maltose-binding protein, MalE, the pore-forming subunits MalF and MalG, and a homodimer of the nucleotide-binding subunit, MalK [PMID: 20659291].

This entry represents MalF, and similar proteins. The second periplasmic loop of MalF (MalF-P2) binds to MalE and is involved in activation of the MalFGK2-E complex by inducing structural changes in maltose-bound MalE [PMID: 19159328]. MalF-P2 is also responsible for substrate recognition [PMID: 22451670].
