Nameectoine ABC transporter EhuABCD
DescriptionEctoine, and its derivative hydroxyectoine, are nitrogen-containing compatible solutes that protect enzymes from the stress of high osmolarity. Bacteria may synthesize it, import it, or both. This transporter was partially characterized in Sinorhizobium, where it is encoded along with genes for ectoine catabolism. All subunits are homologous to various amino acid transporter subunits.
