Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Reactions Class: Transport Facilitated by Channels and Pores

Reactions in this class are facilitated by a family of proteins known as channels and pores. These proteins enable the energy independent diffusion of substrates across a membrane. Generally transport is considered to occur without the need for a carrier mediated mechanism but there are exceptions to this (eg. the ligand gated fatty acid channel FadL of E. coli). In the IUBMB Transport Classification System, Channels and Pores (Family 1) contains 5 subfamilies including alpha-helical channels (1.A), beta strand porins (1.B), pore-forming toxins (1.C), non-ribosomally synthesized channels (1.D) and holins (1.E).
