InterPro entry IPR003706Escherichia coli induces the synthesis of at least 30 proteins at the onset of carbon starvation, two-thirds of which are positively regulated by the cyclic AMP (cAMP) and cAMP receptor protein (CRP) complex. This family consists of carbon starvation protein CstA a predicted membrane protein. It has been suggested that CstA is involved in peptide utilization [PUBMED:1848300].

This large superfamily contains a variety of transporters including amino acid permeases that according to TCDB belong to the APC (Amino acid-Polyamine-organoCation) superfamily.

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
