FhuA (M(r) = 78,900) is an Escherichia coli outer membrane protein which transports the ferric siderophore ferrichrome and is the receptor for phage T5, phi 80 and T1 and for colicin M. FhuA was purified chromatographically in non-ionic detergent (octyl glucoside). The circular dichroism spectrum indicates that FhuA is essentially organized in beta-strands… CONTINUE READING
