Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0005315 - inorganic phosphate transmembrane transporter activity

Synonyms: GO:0005317

Definition: Enables the transfer of a inorganic phosphate from one side of a membrane to the other, up its concentration gradient. The transporter binds the solute and undergoes a series of conformational changes. Transport works equally well in either direction and is driven by a chemiosmotic source of energy. Chemiosmotic sources of energy include uniport, symport or antiport.
