3.A.1.143.1
The exoprotein (including α-amylase) secretion system, EcsAB(C) (Leskelä et al., 1999). Also may play roles in sporulation, competence (Leskelä et al., 1996) and transformation using purified DNA (Takeno et al., 2011). An involvement of EcsC in transport is not established, but it is similar in sequence to the C-terminus of the P-type ATPase, 3.A.3.31.2.
