Studies on colicin B translocation: FepA is gated by TonB.


Colicin B is a 55 kDa dumbbell-shaped protein toxin that uses the TonB system (outer membrane transporter, FepA, and three cytoplasmic membrane proteins TonB/ExbB/ExbD) to enter and kill Escherichia coli. FepA is a 22-stranded beta-barrel with its lumen filled by an amino-terminal globular domain containing an N-terminal semiconserved region, known as the… (More)
