The Outer membrane protein G (OmpG) Family [Function: Non-specific diffusion channels] Seed alignment | Full alignment | Pfam page | Pfam Wiki page | TC-DB page

OmpG is a monomeric porin possessing a relatively large channel approximately 2.5 nm in diameter. OmpG acts as an efficient non-specific channel for mono-, di- and trisaccharides. OmpG forms a robust 14-stranded ß-barrel with a wide, nonselective pore, which exhibits voltage- and pH-dependent gating caused by loop-driven transitions.
