Entry and Exit of Bacterial Outer Membrane Proteins


Entry and Exit of Bacterial Outer Membrane Proteins

Rajeev Misra. Trends Microbiol. .


The sites of new outer membrane protein (OMP) deposition and the fate of pre-existing OMPs are still enigmatic despite numerous concerted efforts. Rassam et al. identified mid-cell regions as the primary entry points for new OMP insertion in clusters, driving the pre-existing OMP clusters towards cell poles for long-term storage.

Keywords: insertion sites; long-term storage; outer membrane proteins; protein clusters; β-barrels.
