Lipoprotein localisation LolA/LolB/LppX (IPR029046)

Short name: LolA/LolB/LppX

Overlapping entries

Description

LppX is a lipoprotein required for the translocation of complex lipids to the outer membrane of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Its structure consists of a U-shaped beta-half-barrel with a large hydrophobic cavity [PMID: 16541102]. LppX shares a similar fold with the periplasmic molecular chaperone LolA and the outer membrane lipoprotein LolB, which are involved in the localisation of lipoproteins to the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria [PMID: 12839983].
