2.A.23.1.10
Organic acid uptake porter, DctA of 444 aas and 8 - 10 putative TMSs.  Based on mutant analyses, it may transport succinate, benzoate, acetate, fumarate and malate (Nam et al. 2003).  A dctA mutant colonized tobacco roots to a lesser extent than the wild-type during early seedling development. Colonization by the dctA mutant, as compared to the wild type, also reduced the level of systemically induced resistance against the soft rot pathogen Erwinia carotovora SCC1 (Nam et al. 2006).
