MgtE intracellular N domain
SMART accession number:SM00924
Description: This region is the integral membrane part of the eubacterial MgtE family of magnesium transporters. It is presumed to be an intracellular domain, that may be involved in magnesium binding.
Interpro abstract (IPR006668):

This domain is found at the N terminus of eubacterial magnesium transporters of the MgtE family IPR006667 . This domain is an intracellular domain that has an alpha-helical structure. The crystal structure of the MgtE transporter [ (PUBMED:17700703) ] shows two of 5 magnesium ions are in the interface between the N domain and the CBS domains. In the absence of magnesium there is a large shift between the N and CBS domains.
