ATP phosphohydrolase (capsular-polysaccharide-exporting)
ABC-type (ATP-binding cassette-type) ATPase, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains. Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process. An enzyme that exports capsular polysaccharide from Gram-negative bacteria.
