We present a detailed study on the formation of neighboring β-strands during the folding of a monomeric integral membrane protein of the β-barrel type. β-Strand and β-barrel formations were investigated for the eight-stranded transmembrane domain of outer membrane protein A (OmpA) with single-tryptophan (W), single-cysteine (C) OmpA mutants. Based on the OmpA structure, W and C were introduced in two neighboring β-strands oriented toward the hydrocarbon core of the membrane. Replaced residue… Expand
Folding of β-Barrel Membrane Proteins into Lipid Membranes by Site-Directed Fluorescence Spectroscopy.
Protein-lipid interactions are important for folding and membrane insertion of integral membrane proteins that are composed either of α-helical or of β-barrel structure in their transmembraneExpand
Molecular switch between structural compaction and thermodynamic stability by interface Xxx-Pro in transmembrane β-barrels.
TLDR
This work assigns a thermodynamic measure for the extent to which a single proline can be tolerated at the C-terminal interface of the model transmembrane β-barrel PagP and finds that proline drastically destabilizes PagP, highlighting the detrimental effect brought about by proline incorporation.

Folding studies of purified LamB protein, the maltoporin from the Escherichia coli outer membrane: trimer dissociation can be separated from unfolding.
TLDR
It is found that low pH promotes dissociation of the LamB trimer to folded monomers, which run at about one third the size of the native trimer during SDS PAGE and are much more resistant to trypsin than the unfolded protein. Expand
Folding of β-barrel membrane proteins in lipid bilayers - Unassisted and assisted folding and insertion.
TLDR
An overview of the principles and mechanisms observed for the folding of β-barrel transmembrane proteins into lipid bilayers, the importance of lipid-protein interactions and the function of molecular chaperones and folding assistants is provided. Expand
C-terminal kink formation is required for lateral gating in BamA
TLDR
A persistent kink in the C-terminal strand of the core BAM component, BamA, is identified and spontaneous lateral-gate separation is observed in a mimic of the native bacterial outer membrane. Expand
Assembly of β-barrel proteins into bacterial outer membranes.
TLDR
What is known about the process of β-barrel protein assembly into membranes, and the components of the β- barrel assembly machinery are reviewed. Expand
Kinetics of Insertion and Folding of Outer Membrane Proteins by Gel Electrophoresis.
TLDR
An advantage of this kinetic assay is that it not only allows a direct determination of fractions of folded and unfolded forms at a selected time during folding of the β-TMP into a membrane, but also facilitates the determination of the impact of folding factors (e.g., molecular chaperones) or folding machinery that most often have a different molecular mass and electrophoretic mobility. Expand
Novel Kinetic Intermediates Populated along the Folding Pathway of the Transmembrane β-Barrel OmpA.
TLDR
A multistep folding mechanism for OmpA is proposed that includes unstructured surface-adsorbed states converting through a partially inserted state with substantial β-sheet structure to the final natively inserted barrel. Expand
Folding and stability of outer membrane protein A (OmpA) from Escherichia coli in an amphipathic polymer, amphipol A8-35
TLDR
Comparison of activation energies for folding and unfolding in A8-35 versus detergent indicates that stabilization of A9-35-trapped OmpA against denaturation by urea is a kinetic, not a thermodynamic phenomenon. Expand
The lipid bilayer-inserted membrane protein BamA of Escherichia coli facilitates insertion and folding of outer membrane protein A from its complex with Skp.
TLDR
Folding of β-barrel membrane proteins, either from a urea-unfolded form or from chaperone-bound aqueous forms, has been characterized for pure lipid bilayers and the kinetics of OmpA folding and insertion were fastest for bilayers containing BamA, indicating an interaction of Skp-OmpA complexes with BamA.

TLDR
The binding sites of outer membrane protein A (OmpA) from Escherichia coli in its complexes with the membrane protein chaperone Skp and withSkp and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) by site-directed fluorescence spectroscopy demonstrate that interactions of Skp change the conformation of OmpA in the Skp complex for facilitated insertion and folding into membranes.

Secondary and tertiary structure formation of the beta-barrel membrane protein OmpA is synchronized and depends on membrane thickness.
TLDR
OmpA, and presumably other beta-barrel membrane proteins therefore do not follow a mechanism according to the two-stage model that has been proposed for the folding of alpha-helical bundle membrane proteins, likely a consequence of the very different intramolecular hydrogen bonding and hydrophobicity patterns in these two classes of membrane proteins.

Solution Structure of the Integral Human Membrane Protein VDAC-1 in Detergent Micelles
TLDR
NMR measurements revealed the binding sites of VDAC-1 for the BCl-2 protein Bcl-xL, for reduced β–nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, and for cholesterol as well as voltage-gated channels in phospholipid bilayers similar to those of the native protein. Expand
Outer membrane protein A of Escherichia coli inserts and folds into lipid bilayers by a concerted mechanism.
TLDR
It is shown that wild-type OmpA, which contains five tryptophans, inserts into lipid bilayers via three structurally distinct membrane-bound folding intermediates, and strong evidence is provided for a synchronous translocation of all four beta-hairpins of OMPA across the lipid bilayer. Expand
Folding intermediates of a beta-barrel membrane protein. Kinetic evidence for a multi-step membrane insertion mechanism.
TLDR
A simple folding model for beta-barrel membrane proteins is presented, in which folding and membrane insertion are coupled processes which involve at least four kinetically distinguishable steps and both membrane-bound intermediates can be stabilized in fluid lipid bilayers at low temperatures.

Characterization of two membrane-bound forms of OmpA.
TLDR
Measurements of the linear dichroism of the amide I' bands in the inserted form are consistent with an antiparallel beta-barrel in which the strands are inclined at about 36 degrees from the membrane normal, which is likely larger in the 35 kDa form than in the inserting form. Expand
Structure of the outer membrane protein A transmembrane domain
TLDR
The structure of the OmpA transmembrane domain consists of a regular, extended eight-stranded ß-barrel and appears to be constructed like an inverse micelle with large water-filled cavities, but does not form a pore. Expand

The pronounced selectivity of interaction found with anionic spin-labeled lipids places basic residues of the protein in the vicinity of the polar-apolar membrane interfaces, consistent with current topology models. Expand
