First build a time maschine and use it to travel some 50 years into the 
future. Then get access to the Brookhaven database of protein structures. 
I am confident it will be there.

To the best of my knowledge and belief no ABC (nor P-type for 
that matter) transporter has been crystallised yet, at least not in 3D 
crystalls suitable for high resolution work.
