Although no association of AsmA with the OM was detected, AsmA superfamily members YhjG and YicH (but not AsmA itself) were predicted to be beta-barrel proteins indicating that the inner membrane-anchored AsmA family proteins may also insert into the outer membrane, consistent with their putative role in OM protein assembly and OM maintenance (Zhai, 2009). SignalP and TMHMM indicate a single N-terminal transmembrane segment of YhjG may serve as a signal anchor.
