Cloning, expression, purification, crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction of a lysine-specific permease from Pseudomonas aeruginosa.


The prokaryotic lysine-specific permease (LysP) belongs to the amino acid-polyamine-organocation (APC) transporter superfamily. In the cell, members of this family are responsible for the uptake and recycling of nutrients, for the maintenance of a constant internal ion concentration and for cell volume regulation. The detailed mechanism of substrate… (More)
