Description This is a type of carrier produced by bacteria. It enables passive transport by shielding the ion that is being transported from the lipid membrane. It carries an ion across the membrane by enclosing the ion and travelling across the membrane. It does not form a fully open pore across the membrane. (Gene Ontology, GO_0022809)
