The dominating outer membrane protein of the hyperthermophilic Archaeum Ignicoccus hospitalis: a novel pore-forming complex

Burghardt, Tillmann ; Näther, Daniela J. ; Junglas, Benjamin ; Huber, Harald ; Rachel, Reinhard


The membrane protein Imp1227 (Ignicoccus outer membrane protein; Imp1227) is the main protein constituent of the unique outer sheath of the hyperthermophilic, chemolithoautotrophic Archaeum Ignicoccus hospitalis. This outer sheath is the so far only known example for an asymmetric bilayer among the Archaea and is named 'outer membrane'. With its molecular mass of only 6.23 kDa, Imp1227 is found ...
