Biosynthesis and Assembly of Outer Membrane Lipoprotein in E. coli

  • Henry C. Wu

Abstract

The outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria contains abundant copies of a limited number of proteins, the so-called major outer membrane proteins. One of the major outer membrane proteins in E. coli and other gram-negative bacteria is the murein lipoprotein (Braun and Rehn, 1969). The NH2 terminus of this protein consists of a novel amino acid, glycerylcysteine. Two moles of fatty acid are attached to the glyceryl moiety through ester linkage, and one mole of fatty acid is amide-linked to the amino group of the cysteine moiety (Hantke and Braun, 1973).
