YghQ belongs to a family (NCBI COG2244; Pfam PF13440) related to polysaccharide flippases (Wzx, RfbX) mediating the translocation of extracellular polysaccharides. YghQ is an inner membrane protein with six transmembrane helicies and the C-terminus in the periplasm (Daley, 2005). The IS5LO IS element has inserted immediately after the yghQ stop codon.
