Twenty-one families of secondary [proton-motive force (PMF)-driven] carriers are herein described, which, in addition to 13 of the currently recognized 48 families within the ATP-dependent ATP-binding casette (ABC) superfamily and three families of channel proteins, largely account for the transport of amino acids and their derivatives (excluding proteins) into and out of all living cells on Earth. Family characteristics as well as structural and functional properties of the family constituents… CONTINUE READING
