The MscS protein alone is sufficient to form a functional mechanosensitive channel gated directly by tension in the lipid bilayer. The MscS proteins are heptamers of three transmembrane subunits with seven converging M3 domains, and this domain is one of the inner membrane domains.

PF00924Mechanosensitive ion channel, beta-domain (MS_channel_2nd)Mechanosensitive ion channel, beta-domainThis entry includes small conductance mechanosensitive channels (MscS), which assembles to a homoheptameric complex [1-6]. Each monomer consists of a N-terminal transmembrane region and a large cytoplasmic segment composed of a five-stranded antipara ...This entry includes small conductance mechanosensitive channels (MscS), which assembles to a homoheptameric complex [1-6]. Each monomer consists of a N-terminal transmembrane region and a large cytoplasmic segment composed of a five-stranded antiparallel beta-sheet (middle/second) domain and a C-terminal alpha/beta-domain [4-7]. This is the beta domain which adopts a SH3-like barrel structure.

PF21088Mechanosensitive ion channel, transmembrane helices 2/3 (MS_channel_1st)Mechanosensitive ion channel, transmembrane helices 2/3This entry includes small conductance mechanosensitive channels (MscS), which assembles to a homoheptameric complex [1-6]. Each monomer consists of a N-terminal transmembrane region and a large cytoplasmic segment composed of a five-stranded antipara ...This entry includes small conductance mechanosensitive channels (MscS), which assembles to a homoheptameric complex [1-6]. Each monomer consists of a N-terminal transmembrane region and a large cytoplasmic segment composed of a five-stranded antiparallel beta-sheet (middle/second) domain and a C-terminal alpha/beta-domain [4-7]. The N-terminal region consists of three membrane spanning helices (TM1, TM2 and TM3), TM2 and TM3 are represented in this entry. In the heptamer, the permeation pathway is formed by the packing of TM3s, flanked by TM1-TM2 helical hairpins [4].

PF21082Mechanosensitive ion channel MscS, C-terminal (MS_channel_3rd)Mechanosensitive ion channel MscS, C-terminalThis entry includes small conductance mechanosensitive channels (MscS), which assembles to a homoheptameric complex [1-6].

Each monomer consists of a N-terminal transmembrane region and a large cytoplasmic segment composed of a five-stranded antiparallel beta-sheet domain (beta-domain, Pfam:PF00924) and a C-terminal alpha/beta-domain [1,2,3]. This is the C-terminal domain of McsS which, together with the middle beta-domain, creates a framework that connects to the cytoplasm through distinct openings [4-6].
