Lipoproteins from the Bacterial Outer Membranes

Their Gene Structures and Assembly Mechanism
  • Masayori Inouye

Abstract

The envelope of gram-negative bacteria consists of two distinct membranes, the cytoplasmic membrane and the outer membrane. In contrast to the cytoplasmic membrane, the outer membrane contains a small number of major proteins, accounting for more than 90% of the total outer-membrane protein (see reviews by Inouye, 1979a; DiRienzo et al., 1978). As these major outer-membrane proteins (lipoprotein, OmpA protein, and matrix proteins) are the most abundant of all cellular proteins, they are readily purified and characterized.
