Name  Siderophore transporter, RhtX/FptXfamily Short Name  Siderophore_transpt_RhtX/FptX
Type  Family Description  RhtX from Sinorhizobium meliloti 1021and FptX from Pseudomonas aeruginosaappear to be single polypeptide transporters, from the major facilitator family for import of siderophores as a means to import iron. This function was suggested by proximity to siderophore biosynthesis genes and then confirmed by study of knockout and heterologous expression phenotypes.
