The Borrelia Oms28 porin Family [Function: Non-specific channels] Seed alignment | Full alignment in OMPdb

Members of this family are small (28 kDa) surface exposed proteins found in Borrelia. They exhibit channel activity, which indicates their role as porins. However, prediction methods do not corroborate to a large beta sheet content, a fact that may indicates the multimeric nature of the presumable ß-barrel. Recent contradicting evidence though suggest that Oms28 could be a periplasmic outer membrane-associated protein.
