maltose transmembrane transporter activity

id: GO:0005363
name: maltose transmembrane transporter activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Catalysis of the transfer of maltose from one side of the membrane to the other. Maltose is the disaccharide 4-O-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl-D-glucopyranose, an intermediate in the enzymatic breakdown of glycogen and starch.
