Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0015288 - porin activity

Synonyms: porin

Definition: Catalysis of the transfer of substances, sized less than 1000 Da, from one side of the membrane to the other. The transmembrane portions of porins consist exclusively of beta-strands which form a beta-barrel. They are found in the outer membranes of Gram-negative bacteria, mitochondria, plastids and possibly acid-fast Gram-positive bacteria.
