The Na(+)/solute symporter family (SSF, TC No. 2.A.21) contains more than 40 members of pro- and eukaryotic origin. Besides their sequence similarity, the transporters share the capability to utilize the free energy stored in electrochemical Na(+) gradients for the accumulation of solutes. As part of catabolic pathways most of the transporters are most… CONTINUE READING
