Artificial expression of abgT allows the uptake of p-aminobenzoyl-glutamate (Hussein, 1998; Carter, 2007). abgAB expression catalyzes the p-aminobenzoyl-glutamate assimilation to feed p-aminobenzoate auxotrophs (Carter, 2007). The abg operon is silent and an AbgR inducer has not been found, suggesting another natural substrate (Hussein, 1998; Carter, 2007). IT (Ion Transporter) superfamily (Prakash, 2003). ST(3) structural class based on hydropathy profile (Lolkema, 2003).
