BacMet ID: BAC0167Code for: Efflux
Family: Cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter familySequence: FASTA
Cross-database IDs: Link
Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12)Location: Chromosome
Compound: Iron (Fe), Zinc (Zn), Cobalt (Co), Cadmium (Cd), Nickel (Ni)Description: Iron-efflux transporter responsible for iron detoxification. Also able to transport Zn2+ in a proton-dependent manner. The CDF protein, FieF, is mainly a ferrous iron detoxifying protein but also mediated some resistance against other divalent metal cations such as Zn(II), Co(II), Cd(II), and Ni(II) in W. metallidurans or Escherichia coli.
Length (amino acid): 300
