Binding and transport of metal ions at the dimer interface of the Escherichia coli metal transporter YiiP.


YiiP is a representative member of the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) family, a class of ubiquitous metal transporters that play an essential role in metal homeostasis. Recently, a pair of Zn2+/Cd2+-selective binding sites has been localized to two highly conserved aspartyl residues (Asp157), each in a 2-fold-symmetry-related transmembrane segment 5… (More)
