Reaction: ATP + H2O + vitamin B12-[cobalamin-binding protein][side 1] = ADP + phosphate + vitamin B12[side 2] + [cobalamin-binding protein][side 1]
Other name(s): BtuCDF; vitamin B12 ABC transporter; vitamin B12-transporting ATPase
Systematic name: ATP phosphohydrolase (ABC-type, vitamin B12-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. Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process. A bacterial enzyme that interacts with an extracytoplasmic substrate binding protein and mediates the high affinity uptake of cobalamin derivatives.
