YiiP is a 32.9-kDa metal transporter found in the plasma membrane of Escherichia coli (Chao, Y., and Fu, D. (2004) J. Biol. Chem. 279, 17173-17180). Here we report the determination of the YiiP oligomeric state in detergent-lipid micelles and in membranes. Molecular masses of YiiP solubilized with dodecyl-, undecyl-, decyl-, or nonyl-beta-d-maltoside were measured directly using size-exclusion chromatography coupled with laser light-scattering photometry, yielding a mass distribution of YiiP… CONTINUE READING
