The Carbapenem resistance-associated outer membrane protein (carO) Family [Function: Specific channels] Seed alignment | Full alignment in OMPdb

This family contains outer membrane proteins responsible for carbapenem resistance in the Moraxellaceae family of Gamma-Proteobacteria. Resistance to both imipenem and meropenem in multidrug-resistant clinical strains of Acinetobacter baumannii is associated with the loss of a heat-modifiable 29 kDa outer membrane protein, designated carO, which was the first identified member of the family and its structure revealed an 8-stranded monomeric ß-barrel.
