The relationships between the bacteriophage lambda binding site, the starch binding site and the pore formed by maltoporin (LamB protein, lambda receptor protein) were investigated. Bacteria with single amino acid substitutions in the maltoporin sequence, which were previously shown to be strongly reduced in phage lambda sensitivity, were assayed for maltose- (and maltodextrin) selective pore functions. Maltose transport assays was performed at low substrate concentrations, under conditions… CONTINUE READING
