A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Gene. 1997 Jun 11;192(1):7-11.

One of the strategies used by Gram-negative bacteria to secrete proteins across the two membranes which delimit the cells is sec-independent and dedicated to proteins lacking an N-terminal signal peptide. Most of these proteins display a C-terminal secretion signal located in the last 60 amino acids (aa). Using one Erwinia chrysanthemi protease, PrtG, secreted by such a pathway it was shown that the smallest C-terminal sequence allowing efficient secretion contains the last 29 aa of PrtG and that low but significant secretion can be promoted by the last 15 aa of PrtG. Moreover, the extreme C-terminal motif, consisting of a negatively charged aa followed by several hydrophobic aa must be exposed and is conserved amongst many proteins following this pathway. This secretion system depends on ABC protein-mediated exporters, which consist of three cell envelope proteins: two inner membrane proteins, an ATPase (the ABC protein), a membrane fusion protein (MFP) and an outer membrane polypeptide. These Gram-negative bacterial protein exporters are dedicated to the secretion of one or several closely related proteins belonging to the toxin, protease and lipase families. The genes encoding the three secretion proteins and the exoproteins are usually all linked, consistent with the specificity of the systems. Er. chrysanthemi metalloproteases B and C and Serratia marcescens hemoprotein HasA are secreted by such homologous pathways and interact with the ABC protein. Interaction between the ABC protein and its substrate has also been evidenced by studies on protease and HasA hybrid transporters obtained by combining components from each system. Association between hemoprotein HasA and the three exporter secretion proteins was demonstrated by affinity chromatography on hemin agarose on which the substrate remained bound with the three secretion proteins. The three components’ association was ordered and substrate binding was required for the formation of this multiprotein complex.
