61,62,73,79,81 The intrinsic redox potentials of nDsbD and cDsbD have values of À235 and À232 mV73 and suggest that the electron flow within DsbD is energetically favorable as well. However, the picture of the energetics of the entire electron flow catalyzed by DsbD is still incomplete, as the redox potential of the DsbD TM domain has not yet been determined. 3 33 DsbG, a Structural Homolog of DsbC with Unknown Function DsbG is the second disulfide isomerase in the E. 60–61,79,81 DsbG is kept in the reduced state by DsbD and possesses disulfide isomerase activity in E.
