The VraFG ABC transporter interacts with GraXSR [GraX, Q7A2W7; GraS, A6QEW9; GraR, A6QEW8] to form a five- or six-component system required for cationic antimicrobial peptide sensing and resistance (Falord et al., 2012). VraX has been termed a two component system connector and may not be a component of the transporter. VraFG may be a sensor rather than the transporter for the substrate peptide. The actual transporter regulated by VraFGX may have TC# 4.H.1.1.1 (MprF) (Falord et al. 2012). The extracellular loop of the membrane permease VraG interacts with GraS to sense cationic antimicrobial peptides in Staphylococcus aureus (Cho et al. 2021).
