Dipeptide/heme transport, periplasmic binding protein; recognition for transport and chemotaxis
|Function from GO|
See Help:Quickview for help with entering information in the Quickview table.
DppA binds dipeptides and heme, and mediates chemotaxis to dipeptides through the Tap chemoreceptor. E. coli does not normally use exogeneous heme, but heme can be utilized if a foreign OM heme receptor is expressed in E. coli; heme and dipeptides compete for the same binding site; MppA is an alternative heme periplasmic binding protein; MppA or DppA is required for the uptake of 5-aminolevulinic acid (Letoffe, 2006). After four hours of Zn(II) stress, DppA protein levels decreased (Easton, 2006).
