ABC Transporters and the Export of Capsular Polysaccharides From Gram-Negative Bacteria

R P Silver et al. Res Microbiol.

Abstract

In this review, we discuss the kps cluster of Escherichia coli as the paradigm for the ABC capsular polysaccharide exporter (CPSE) family. Components of the cluster form a multimeric protein complex consisting of both biosynthetic and export machinery. We compare the Kps exporter with capsule export systems from other members of the CPSE family.
