ITR1 Myo-inositol transporter
with strong similarity to the
minor myo-inositol transporter
Itr2p, member of the sugar tr
ansporter superfamily; express
ion is repressed by inositol a
nd choline via Opi1p and derep
ressed via Ino2p and Ino4p
This protein is the in domain of sugar transporter with an E-value of 1.5X10-66, indicating that the sequence contains strongly conserved amino acids typical of the domain. . These types of transporters come from the Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS) that are responsible for binding and then transporting several different molecules such as sugars, carbohydrates, and small, biological acids. While much is unknown about this specific transporter, it most likely is involved in the binding and transport of sugars across the cell membrane.
