1.B.25.1.13
Chitoporin, ChiP or YbfM of 468 aas. Takes up chitosugars such as chitobiose.  It also plays a role in carbapenem (imipenem) resistance.  The orthologue in Proteus mirabilis is ImpR, and that in Salmonella species is YbfM. It is subject to regulation by the small RNA, MicM (Tsai et al. 2015).  Loss of OmpC and OmpF results in poor growth, by expression of chiP restores growth (Knopp and Andersson 2015).
