  • Abstract:

    In , proteins found in the periplasm or the outer membrane are exported from the cytoplasm by the general secretory, Sec, system before they acquire stably folded structure. This dynamic process involves intricate interactions among cytoplasmic and membrane proteins, both peripheral and integral, as well as lipids. , both ATP hydrolysis and proton motive force are required. Here, we review the Sec system from the inception of the field through early 2016, including biochemical, genetic, and structural data.

SecB is a tetramer organized as a dimer of dimers. (a) and (c) show the two protomers that make eight-stranded β sheets on the flat sides of SecB. (b) and (d) are related to (a) and (c) by 90° rotation to show the interface of the dimer of dimers. Each protomer is shown as a different color. PDB 1QYN.

Site-directed spin labeling and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy were used to map the contact sites between SecB and polypeptide ligands. The sites of contact are shown in green. Residues that showed no contact are shown in gray, and residues not tested are shown in yellow. (a) Flat eight-stranded β-sheet on the side of the tetramer. (b) is related to (a) by a 90° rotation around the vertical axis to show the channel at the interface between the dimers. (c) The end view of the tetramer shows the depth of the channel. The structure was generated by threading the sequence through the structure (PDB 1FX3) which has more C-terminal residues resolved than does the structure.

The structure of SecYEβ (PDB 1RHZ) is shown as an example of the common structure of the SecYE core. SecY is shown as the orange ribbon, SecE as the green ribbon, and Secβ (SecG in ) as purple. The view in (a) is in the plane of the membrane with the cytoplasmic face at the top and the periplasmic face at the bottom. The view in (b) results from a 90° rotation toward the viewer to show the channel in the translocon from the cytoplasmic face. The plug can be seen in the middle of the channel at the periplasmic side.

Ribbon representation of SecA from with the PBD in different positions. The Linker Helix is shown in green and the NBD2 in brown to serve as references for movement of the PBD, shown in magenta. The reminder of the SecA is represented in gray. The SecY loop between TM6 and TM7 which inserts into SecA is shown in cyan in (c). (a) SecA in solution, PDB 3JUX; (b) SecA in solution with ADP bound, PDB 4YS0; and (c) SecA with ADP and BeFx bound in complex with SecY, PDB 3DIN.

SecG has two transmembrane domains represented by orange and a segment connecting the two membrane domains represented by blue. The N and C termini lie on the same side of the membrane. The left-hand image represents SecG in the idle state. During protein translocation SecG inverts as shown on the right-hand side. The open arrows indicate sites of protease cleavage. The region at the C terminus recognized by anti-SecG antibody is indicated.

The structure of SecDF, which is encoded as a single polypeptide chain, is colored to represent the individual SecD and SecF polypeptides found in . Transmembrane helices 1 to 6 (blue) represent SecD. The periplasmic P1 domain between TM1 and TM2 is shown at the top of the figure. The head and the base subdomains are indicated. Transmembrane helices 7 and 8 represent SecF.

Figure 11

The P1 domain of SecDF, shown extending into the periplasm comprises two subdomains: a P1 head (orange) and P1 base (blue). The protein was crystallized in the F form (left-hand side) with the P1 domain positioned so that the head is bent toward the membrane. The I form shows the head directly above the base. This structure is a model built from superimposing the base subdomain of the isolated P1 structure onto that of the full-length SecDF. Reprinted from reference 233 , with permission.
