Homologous Superfamily

MetI-like superfamily (IPR035906)

Short name: MetI-like_sf

Overlapping entries


The Escherichia coli MetI subunit of the L-methionine transmembrane transporter is organised around a core of five transmembrane helices that correspond to a subset of the helices observed in the larger membrane-spanning subunits of the molybdate (ModBC) and maltose (MalFGK) ABC transporters, which contain six helices [PMID: 18621668].

This superfamily represents proteins that have MetI-like structure.
