ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
ABC-type guanine transporter.
Alternative Name(s)
Guanine-transporting ATPase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + H(2)O + guanine(Side 1) <=> ADP + phosphate + guanine(Side 2)
  • An ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter found in insects that transports guanine and other purines into pigment granules in the eye, where they are converted to pteridine pigments.
  • The transporter is a hererodimer composed of two different peptides, each containing one membrane-spanning and one cytoplasmic ATP-binding domain.
  • In Drosophila, this transporter is encoded by the white and brown genes.
  • Formerly EC
