2.A.10 The 2-Keto-3-Deoxygluconate Transporter (KdgT) Family

The KdgT permease of Erwinia chrysanthemi is the only well-characterized member of the KdgT family although homologues are present in many bacteria.  Thus, members of the family are present both in Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria (Allen et al. 1989). The protein from E. chrysanthemi possesses 398 amino acids and probably traverses the membrane as α-helicies 10-12 times. Uptake is energized by proton symport (Condemine and Robert-Baudouy 1987).

The transport reaction catalyzed by KdgT is:

KDG (out) + H+ (out)  KDG (in) + H+ (in)

This family belongs to the: BART Superfamily.
