Abstract

The recent crystal structure of TolC elegantly indicates its function and provides insight into its mechanism for export of a wide range of molecules across the periplasmic space and outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria. The structure is compared to those of other proteins that are embedded in bacterial outer membranes or that traverse the periplasmic space.
