A new family of integral membrane proteins involved in transport of aromatic amino acids in Escherichia coli

J Bacteriol. 1991 May;173(10):3231-4. doi: 10.1128/jb.173.10.3231-3234.1991.

Abstract

The nucleotide sequence of tnaB of the tryptophanase operon of Escherichia coli is presented. TnaB is a tryptophan-specific permease that is homologous to Mtr, a second tryptophan-specific permease, and to TyrP, a tyrosine-specific permease. Each member of this family appears to contain 11 membrane-spanning domains.
