skp, also know as Seventeen Kilodalton Protein, is a trimeric periplasmic chaperone that assists outer membrane proteins in their folding and insertion into membranes. skp is required for the efficient release of ompA from the inner membrane, the maintenance of its solubility in the periplasm, and, in association with lipopolysaccharide, for the efficient folding and insertion of ompA into the outer membrane.
