1.B.80. The Putative Trans-Outer Membrane Electron Flow Porin (TOM-EF) Family
Putative porins of 400 - 450 aas with an N-terminal hydrophobic leader sequence followed by about 20 β-strands, probably in a β-barrel, comprise this family. They are constituents of functionally characterized transmembrane electron flow complexes, also including periplasmic and outer membrane cytochrome c homologues. These complexes are presented in a family with TC#5.B.8. See this TC family for a more detailed description (Liu et al. 2015).
CDD recognizes these proteins as members of Porin Superfamily I (see superfamily hyperlink in TCDB). It is not expected that all of these porins function in trans outer membrane electron flow, but this possibility has yet to be tested.
