What is it about?
MmpL transporters are membrane proteins, particularly abundant in non-tuberculous mycobacteria. Herein, we review their role in the transport of a diverse family of substrates that include lipid and non-lipid molecules, in cell envelope assembly and/or in growth and pathogenicity. We also discuss their implication in drug resistance mechanisms and in the vulnerability of pathogenic mycobacteria.
