Summary
Wza function was initially inferred by analogy with strain K30; now K-12 Wza has been shown to have an identical function. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG13566]. Based on sequence similarity, Wza is a member of the outer membrane auxiliary (OMA) protein family . [More information is available at EcoCyc: G7107].
