Accepted name: ABC-type nonpolar-amino-acid transporter
Reaction: ATP + H2O + nonpolar amino acid-[nonpolar amino acid-binding protein][side 1] = ADP + phosphate + nonpolar amino acid[side 2] + [nonpolar amino acid-binding protein][side 1]
Other name(s): nonpolar-amino-acid-transporting ATPase
Systematic name: ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, nonpolar-amino-acid-importing)
Comments: An ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains/proteins and two integral membrane domains/proteins. The enzyme, found in bacteria, interacts with an extracytoplasmic substrate binding protein. This entry comprises enzymes that import Leu, Ile and Val.
