A heterogeneously expressed synthetic porin OprF dramatically increased the membrane permeability of E. coli, resulting in a remarkable decrease in charge-transfer resistance, enhancement in extracellular electron transfer (EET). The oprF-expression strain can efficiently use riboflavin as the electron shuttle, however, its parental strain cannot. Thus, the oprF-expression strain delivered a much higher current output than its parent strain. The results substantiated the observation that membrane permeability can determine the usage spectrum of electron shuttles and the EET efficiency.
