A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The MdoH protein is essential for synthesis of the osmoregulated periplasmic glucans, known as membrane-derived oligosaccharides (MDOs), in Escherichia coli. Mutants lacking MdoH are deficient in a glucosyltransferase activity assayed in vitro. The MdoH protein is the product of the second gene of an operon, and it has been shown to span the cytoplasmic membrane. The MdoH protein comprises 847 amino acids and is poorly expressed as observed by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. We have experimentally measured the topological organization of MdoH within the membrane by construction of fusions to beta-lactamase as a reporter. Analysis of 51 different MdoH-beta-lactamase fusions suggested that the MdoH protein crosses the cytoplasmic membrane eight times, with the N and C termini in the cytoplasm. Moreover, a 310-amino-acid domain is present in the cytoplasm between the second and third transmembrane segments. It was deduced from the measurement of the MDO biosynthetic activity of truncated or fused MdoH proteins that almost all the C-terminal residues are necessary for this activity. The model of the MdoH protein in the membrane suggests that this protein could be directly involved in the translocation of nascent polyglucose chains to the periplasmic space.
