A protein isolated and purified from the outer membrane of the acidophilic, chemolithotrophic bacterium, Thiobacillus ferrooxidans with an oligomeric molecular weight of 90,000 Da (p90) was incorporated into phosphatidylethanolamine planar lipid bilayers. The protein formed slightly anionic channels in KCl solutions, with a conductance of 25 pS in 100 mM(More)
INTRODUCTION ABO-incompatible liver transplantation (ABOi LT) is considered to be a rescue option in emergency transplantation. Herein, we have reported our experience with ABOi LT including long-term survival and major complications in these situations.
