Analysis of structure-function relationships in Escherichia coli K12 outer membrane porins with the aid of ompC-phoE and phoE-ompC hybrid genes


To study structure-function relationships in the outer membrane pore proteins OmpC and PhoE of Escherichia coli K12, we have constructed a series of phoE-ompC hybrid genes in which DNA encoding part of one protein is replaced by the homologous part of the other gene. The hybrid gene products were incorporated normally into the outer membrane, allowing their… (More)
