Escherichia coli is able to accumulate maltose and maltodextrins by an ATP-binding cassette transporter known as the maltose transport system. This transport system is comprised of five proteins: the LamB protein in the outer membrane; the periplasmic maltose-binding protein (MBP); two integral inner membrane proteins, MalF and MalG; and MalK, which is associated with the cytoplasmic face of the inner membrane. It has been previously suggested that MBP interacts with MalF and MalG during sugar… CONTINUE READING
