InterPro : IPR022324

Name  Bacilysin exporter BacE, putative Short Name  Bacilysin_exporter_BacE_put
Type  Family Description  The so-called putative bacilysin exporter, bacE, part of the bacilysin biosynthesis operon, has been shown to be involved in self-protection to bacilysin []by permitting efflux of this antibiotic. The protein belongs to the Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS), a class of single-polypeptide, general substrate carriers that transport small solutes in response to chemiosmotic ion gradients [, ]. The primary structure of the protein is highly hydrophobic, suggesting the presence of 10-12 trans-membrane domains.
