9.B.99 The MipA-interacting Protein (MipA) Family
The MipA family is a large family of outer membrane proteins called OmpV. MltA is designated as a lytic transglycosylase, and MipA may be a scaffolding protein in E. coli (Vollmer et al., 1999). Synthesis of the E. coli MipA is suppressed by glucose (Yang et al., 2011). It is related to the DUF2141 family. One member, YiaT of E. coli, has been considered to be a porin (Vinson et al., 2010). It may have ~10 TM β-strands.
