Comments P.6 right column top paragraph: "The overall diameter of the 24-subunit DegP (~20 nm) (Fig. 3d) approaches the distance between the PM (plasma membrane) and OM (outer membrane), suggesting the simultaneous interaction of projecting PDZ domains with both membranes for safe client transit directly to the OM (primary source)." Wiki: "The PDZ domain is a common structural domain of 80-90 amino-acids found in the signaling proteins of bacteria, yeast, plants, viruses and animals."
