Comments [?]

Function Functions as both a chaperone and a metalloprotease. Maintains the integrity of the outer membrane by promoting either the assembly or the elimination of outer membrane proteins, depending on their folding state.
case <FTGroup:1>
Cofactor Zn(2+)
Note: Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit.
end case
Subcellular location Periplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the peptidase M48 family. BepA subfamily.
