    Protein Summary

    A porin-like solubile protein with unknown function. Only a couple of highly similar sequences, an orphan at this point. There are few more homologs in human metagenomics samples, but the most divergent protein has ~70% sequence identity.


    Fig. 1 Monomer



    We (and others) solves several such soluble beta-barrel, porin-line structures, for instance our 2o62 and Midwest 1tlx. SCOP has been classifying them as lipocalin-like fold (b.60) and while most of them have no known function, some have been shown to bind small molecules inside the barrel and probably function as detoxificants/transporters. Interestingly, these proteins look like half of BVU_2266 (our protein)- see below.



    side and top view of the BVU_2266 (red) and 2o62 (green) structural alignment. Note that the connectivity of the side beta sheet is identical, so one domain of 2o62 (which is a two domain protein) looks essentially like half of BVU_2266, but the inside of the beta barrel is blocked (in the X-ray structure) by the two helix cap. Could it be a removable "plug"?


    Also, BVU_2266 sort of looks like built from four 4-strand segments (3 segments, two helices, 1 segment, segment boundaries 29-68, 69-124, 124-179, 220-270).3.png


    Could be just an effect of regularity of a beta sheet. I dont know. I dont see any traces of this modularity on the sequence level.
