Attacin is a 20 kDa antibacterial protein, originally isolated from the immune haemolymph of Hyalophora cecropia. It has been demonstrated previously that attacin causes increased permeability of the outer membrane of Escherichia coli and inhibition of outer-membrane protein synthesis at the transcriptional level. This is accompanied by inhibition of growth. Here, LPS is shown to serve as the receptor for attacin and evidence is presented that attacin does not need to enter the cell to exertdoi:10.1099/00221287-144-8-2179 pmid:9720039 fatcat:bfr3rlt5x5cftfk7lpumbcxyku
