Sugar transport through maltoporin of Escherichia coli: role of the greasy slide.


The lining of the maltodextrin-specific maltoporin (LamB) channel exhibits a string of aromatic residues, the greasy slide, part of which has been shown previously by crystallography to be involved in substrate binding. To probe the functional role of the greasy slide, alanine scanning mutagenesis has been performed on the six greasy slide residues and Y118… (More)
