Abstract

The crystal structures of two transport proteins associated with a fragment of the TonB protein have been reported for the first time in two recent papers. TonB is implicated in transferring energy from the cytoplasmic membrane to the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria. The very similar structures of the protein complexes define the mode of interactions of TonB with active transport proteins.
