Type I signal peptidases (SPases) are responsible for the cleavage of signal peptides from secretory proteins. Streptomyces lividans contains four different SPases, denoted SipW, SipX, SipY and SipZ, having at least some differences in their substrate specificity. In this report in vitro preprotein binding/processing and protein secretion in single SPase(More)
Finding new, effective antibiotics is a challenging research area driven by novel approaches required to tackle unconventional targets. In this review we focus on the bacterial protein secretion pathway as a target for eliminating or disarming pathogens. We discuss the latest developments in targeting the Sec-pathway for novel antibiotics focusing on two(More)
