9.B.54 The Archaeal 4 TMS Putative DMT (A-4DMT) Family

The A-4DMT family includes many small proteins, all of which have 4 TMSs per polypeptide chain.  Homology with SMR-like proteins has not yet been established.  Bacterial homologues may be found in the B-4DMT Family (TC# 9.B.148).  This 4 TMS domain may also be found at the N-terminus of a putative archaeal chloride channel, CLC (TC# 2.A.49.6.4).
