Reaction: ATP + H2O + phosphate-[phosphate-binding protein][side 1] = ADP + phosphate + phosphate[side 2] + [phosphate-binding protein][side 1]
Other name(s): phosphate ABC transporter; phosphate-transporting ATPase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, phosphate-importing)
Comments: An ATP-binding cassette (ABC) type transporter, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains/proteins and two integral membrane domains/proteins. A bacterial enzyme that interacts with an extracytoplasmic substrate binding protein and mediates the high affinity uptake of phosphate anions. Unlike P-type ATPases, it does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process.
