Reaction: ATP + H2O + Cd2+[side 1] = ADP + phosphate + Cd2+[side 2]
Other name(s): cadmium-translocating P-type ATPase; cadmium-exporting ATPase
Systematic name: ATP phosphohydrolase (Cd2+-exporting)
Comments: A P-type ATPase that undergoes covalent phosphorylation during the transport cycle. This enzyme occurs in protozoa, fungi and plants.
