Attachment invasion locus (Ail) protein of Yersinia pestis is a crucial outer membrane protein for host invasion and determines bacterial survival within the host. Despite its importance in pathogenicity, surprisingly little is known on Ail biophysical properties. We investigate the contribution of micelle concentrations and interface tryptophans on the Ail(More)
The free energy of water-to-interface amino acid partitioning is a major contributing factor in membrane protein folding and stability. The interface residues at the C terminus of transmembrane β-barrels form the β-signal motif required for assisted β-barrel assembly in vivo but are believed to be less important for β-barrel assembly in vitro Here, we(More)
