General-diffusion porins form large beta-barrel channels that control the permeability of the outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria to nutrients, some antibiotics, and external signals. Here, we have analyzed the effects of mutations in the OmpU porin of Vibrio cholerae at conserved residues that are known to affect pore properties in the Escherichia(More)
The electrophysiological technique of patch-clamp was used to characterize the pore properties of site-directed mutants in the Vibrio cholerae general diffusion porin OmpU. Changes in conductance and selectivity were observed, thus confirming the predicted pore location of these residues, based on homology with the Escherichia coli porins OmpF and OmpC.(More)
