Beta-barrel protein

This graphic shows two conformations of BamA (gold) against a lipid bilayer background. The left side shows the crystallized form of BamA, almost completely closed, while the right shows a laterally open state revealed by the simulations. The red color denotes the interior of the barrel. (Courtesy of J.C. Gumbart)
