ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
ABC-type lipopolysaccharide transporter.
Alternative Name(s)
Lipopolysaccharide transport system.
Lipopolysaccharide-transporting ATPase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + H(2)O + lipopolysaccharide(Side 1) <=> ADP + phosphate + lipopolysaccharide(Side 2)
  • An ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains/proteins and two integral membrane domains/proteins.
  • Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process.
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Escherichia coli, functions as part of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) export system, a seven protein system that translocates LPS from the inner- to the outer membrane.
  • The ATPase activity in this system is implicated in releasing LPS from the inner membrane.
  • Formerly EC
