Structure of the complex of the colicin E2 R-domain and its BtuB receptor. The outer membrane colicin translocon.

Abstract

The crystal structure of the complex of the BtuB receptor and the 135-residue coiled-coil receptor-binding R-domain of colicin E3 (E3R135) suggested a novel mechanism for import of colicin proteins across the outer membrane. It was proposed that one function of the R-domain, which extends along the outer membrane surface, is to recruit an additional outer… (More)
