Ehrlichia chaffeensis, an obligatory intracellular gram-negative bacterium, must take up various nutrients and metabolic compounds because it lacks many genes involved in metabolism. Nutrient uptake by a gram-negative bacterium occurs primarily through pores or channels in the bacterial outer membrane. Here we demonstrate that isolated E. chaffeensis outer membranes have porin activities, as determined by a proteoliposome swelling assay. The activity was partially blocked by an antibody that… CONTINUE READING
