InterPro : IPR005267

Name  Glycerol-3-phosphate transporter Short Name  G3P_transporter
Type  Family Description  This family includes very hydrophobic proteins, predicted to span the membrane at least 8 times. The two members confirmed experimentally as glycerol-3-phosphate transporters, from Escherichia coli[, , ]and Bacillus subtilis[], share more than 50 % amino acid identity.
