The Lysenin Family [Function: Non-specific diffusion channels] Seed alignment | Full alignment | TC-DB page
Lysenin is a PFT of Eisena fetida and a member of the aerolysin family. It is a nonamer and forms an 18-strand smooth-walled tubular ß barrel attached to the outside by the C-terminal domains. It is a mushroom-like structure which has a transmembrane pore with a central stem built of a long ß barrel. Having a uniform and stable ß barrel through the entire length of protein makes lysenin an exception among PFTs.
