1.B.1.7.1
Chitoporin, ChiP of 366 aas and 1 N-terminal TMS. Its synthesis is induced by (GlcNAcn, n = 2-6, but not by GlcNAc or other sugars. A nulll mutant did not grow on GlcNAc3 and transported a nonmetabolizable analogue of GlcNAc2 at a reduced rate. (Keyhani et al., 2000).

Species:Vibrio furnissii [29494]
Number of TMSs:1
Location1 / Topology2 / Orientation3: Cell membrane1 / Multi-pass membrane protein2
