Membrane topology of the cyanobacterial bicarbonate transporter, BicA, a member of the SulP (SLC26A) family

Shelden, Megan; Howitt, Susan; Price, Graeme (Dean)


We have completed the first comprehensive transmembrane topology determination for a member of the ubiquitous and important SulP/SLC26 family of coupled anion transporters found in eukaryotes and prokaryotes. The prokaryotic member that we have mapped, namely BicA from Synechococcus PCC7002, is an important Na+-dependent bicarbonate transporter that is likely to play a major role in global primary productivity via the CO2 concentrating mechanism in cyanobacteria. We experimentally determined...[Show more]
