1.B.75 The DUF481 Putative Beta Barrel Porin (DUF481) Family
The DUF481 family consists of large numbers of proteins from a wide range of Gram-negative bacteria. These proteins are of about 230 - 260 aas, but some are longer due to hydrophilic extensions. These proteins have an N-terminal signal sequence as well as 10 - 12 putative TM β-strands. An E. coli K12 member of the family is YdiY. These proteins probably belong to the: Outer Membrane Pore-forming Protein I (OMPP-I) Superfamily, but this suggestion has not been rigorously substantiated.
