The screening of the open reading frames identified in the whole yeast genome has allowed us to discover 34 proteins belonging to the mitochondrial carrier family. By phylogenetic study, they can be divided into 27 subfamilies including ADP/ATP, phosphate and citrate carriers, putative oxoglutarate and GDC carriers and 22 new subfamilies. Topology predictions using the 'positive inside rule' approach have shown that the yeast carriers are similarly oriented with both extremities exposed to the cytosol. In each subfamily, a strict conservation of the charged residues in the six transmembrane alpha-helices is observed, suggesting a functional role for these residues and the existence of 27 functionally distinct carriers.

Structural analogy between D-alanyl-D-alanine terminated peptides (and analogues) of varying substrate activity toward D-alanyl-D-alanine-cleaving peptidases, and bicyclic fused ring azetidinone structures of varying inactivating potency toward the same enzymes has been exa-mihed by comparing the relative spatial disposition of the carboxylate function at the C-terminal position and the amide function at the N-terminal position with respect to the scissile amide bond at the central position. The observed variations in the geometric parameters and the molecular electrostatic potential maps generated by these functional groups suggest multiple modes of binding. In the monobactam sulfazecin, the relative disposition of at least the scissile amide bond and the terminal sulphamate group is comparable to that of the corresponding functions in the bicyclic β-lactams.
