Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. The structures of two related bacterial membrane proteins help to understand protein transport processes in the outer membranes of bacteria, mitochondria, and chloroplasts. Omp85, an evolutionary conserved protein, is the central component of the machine required for folding and inserting outer membrane proteins (OMPs). Moreover, some OMPs with sequence similarity to Omp85 are involved in transport processes such as protein secretion in bacteria and protein import into chloroplasts. In this issue, Kim et al. and Clantin et al. provide insights into the structures of members of this protein superfamily.
