The mechanism of anion transport through the phosphate-starvation inducible OprP-channel of Pseudomonas aeruginosa outer membrane was studied in planar lipid bilayer membranes. The single-channel conductance of OprP was 160 pS in 100 mM chloride solution. Addition of other anions, in particular of phosphate, di and tribasic anions lead to a strong decrease of the chloride conductance. The decrease was used to calculate the stability constants for the binding of these ions to the binding site of… CONTINUE READING
