OEP40 is considered a glucose-gate in the outer membrane of chloroplasts, supporting the movement of selective metabolites between chloroplasts and the attached cells. Circular dichroism studies reported that OEP40 has 35.6% of beta sheets in its structure, and, as a result, it composes a beta barrel in the outer membrane.
