9.B.156 The Putative 4-10 TMS Permease (4-10P) Family

The 4, 5, 8, 10 TMS Permease familly consists of many proteins of 4, 5, 8 and 10 TMSs per polypeptide chain.  In these respects, members of this family are similar to members of the DMT superfamily. One member of the family has been annotated as a  cobalt ion transporter. These proteins show limited sequence similarity with parts of proteins belonging to family 9.A.8 (FeoB).
