Abstract

Channel-forming colicins undergo a remarkable series of conformational gyrations during their voyage from the extracellular milieu to the periplasmic membrane. Crystal structures of the intact colicin la molecule and a channel-forming domain of colicin E1 illuminate relationships between the molecular structure and biological function of these voltage-dependent channel-forming toxins.
