The MscS-like channel YnaI has a gating mechanism based on flexible pore helices
It is shown by electron cryomicroscopy that YnaI has an extended sensor paddle that during gating relocates relative to the pore concomitant with bending of a GGxGG motif in the pORE helices, the only one of the six paralogs that has this GGx GG motif allowing the sensor paddle to move outward.
