Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0015453 - oxidoreduction-driven active transmembrane transporter activity

Synonyms: Oxidoreduction-driven transporters

Definition: Primary active transport of a solute across a membrane, driven by exothermic flow of electrons from a reduced substrate to an oxidized substrate. Primary active transport is catalysis of the transport of a solute across a membrane, up the solute's concentration gradient, by binding the solute and undergoing a series of conformational changes. Transport works equally well in either direction and is driven by a primary energy source.
