CommentThe Folate-Biopterin Transporter (FBT) Family (TC 2.A.71) The only functionally characterized members of the family are from protozoa and include FT1, the major folate transporter in Leishmania, and BT1, the Leishmania biopterin/folate transporter. A related protein in Trypanosoma brucei, ESAGIO, shows weak folate/biopterin transport activity.
