An outer membrane barrel assembly machinery (BAM) is in the bacterial outer membrane (between the red and blue plates). The BAM machinery contains one outer membrane protein BamA (green) and four lipoproteins BamB (yellow), BamC (magnet), BamD (orange) and BamC (cyan), which is responsible for insertion and assembly unfolded outer membrane proteins into the outer membrane.
