Subunit of: leucine ABC transporter

Subunit composition of leucine ABC transporter = [LivK][LivM][LivH][LivG][LivF]
         leucine ABC transporter - periplasmic binding protein = LivK (summary available)
         branched chain amino acid transporter - membrane subunit = LivM
         branched chain amino acid transporter - membrane subunit = LivH
         branched chain amino acid transporter - ATP binding subunit = LivG
         branched chain amino acid ABC transporter - ATP binding subunit = LivF

Summary:
LivFGHMJ and LivFGHMK are two ATP-dependent high-affinity branched-chain amino acid transport system and are members of the ATP Binding Cassette (ABC) Superfamily of transporters [Igarashi99]. The two systems are responsible for the high affinity transport of branched-chain amino acids in E. coli. They have shared membrane and ATP-binding components but have distinctive periplasmic binding proteins. Due to the different periplasmic binding components, the two complexes differ in their binding specificity: LivFGHMK is specific for the transport of leucine, while LivFGHMJ is a transporter for leucine, isoleucine, and valine [Nazos85]. Based on sequence similarity and hydrophobicity analysis, LivJ and LivK are the two periplasmic animo acid-binding proteins, LivH and LivM are the membrane components, and LivG and LivF are the ATP-binding component of the ABC transport complexes [Adams90]. Deletions each of the liv genes resulted in the inability to transport leucine [Adams90]. In addition, a deletion strain that does not express any of the liv genes was unable to carry out high-affinity transport of leucine unless one of the binding protein genes and all of the membrane complex genes were provided on a plasmid [Adams90]. In a separate experiment, liv gene mutants were found to be resistant to a toxic analog of leucine, azaleucine, due to its inability in branched-chain amino acid transport [Nazos85].

Subunit of: branched chain amino acid ABC transporter

LivFGHMJ and LivFGHMK are two ATP-dependent high-affinity branched-chain amino acid transport systems and are members of the ATP Binding Cassette (ABC) Superfamily of transporters [Igarashi99].

Based on sequence similarity and hydrophobicity analysis, LivJ and LivK are the two periplasmic animo acid-binding proteins, LivH and LivM are the membrane components, and LivG and LivF are the ATP-binding component of the ABC transport complexes [Adams90].

Deletion of each of the liv genes resulted in the inability to transport leucine [Adams90]. In addition, a deletion strain that does not express any of the liv genes was unable to carry out high-affinity transport of leucine unless one of the binding protein genes and all of the membrane complex genes were provided on a plasmid [Adams90]. In a separate experiment, liv gene mutants were found to be resistant to a toxic analog of leucine, azaleucine, due to its inability in branched-chain amino acid transport [Nazos85]. This system has also been shown [Koyanagi04] to serve as a third (along with the AroP and PheP systems) complex for transport of phenylanine across the inner membrane.
