Oxidative Assembly of the Outer Membrane Lipopolysaccharide Translocon LptD/E and Progress towards Its X-Ray Crystal Structure
Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is the glycolipid that comprises the outer leaflet of the Gram-negative outer membrane (OM). Because it is essential in nearly all Gram-negative species, and because it is responsible for making ...
Identification and Characterization of Intermediates during Folding on the β-Barrel Assembly Machine in Escherichia coli
β-barrel membrane proteins play important structural and functional roles in Gram negative bacteria and in mitochondria and chloroplasts of eukaryotes. A conserved machine is responsible for the folding and insertion of ...
