2.A.7.17.2
General amino acid exporter (probably including aromatic amino acids as well as thr, met lys, glu and others), YddG.  Its topology with 10 TMSs and both the N- and C-termini inside has been established (Airich et al. 2010). This system has been used for the export of tryptophan for commercial purposes (Wang et al. 2013).  The 3-d structures (PD# 5I20) of a homologue (TC# 2.A.7.3.66) has been determined at 2.4 Å resolution, showing the outward facing conformation of a basket shaped structure with a central substrate binding cavity (Tsuchiya et al. 2016).
