Lantibiotic and non‐lantibiotic bacteriocins are synthesized as precursor peptides containing N‐terminal extensions (leader peptides) which are cleaved off during maturation. Most non‐lantibiotics and also some lantibiotics have leader peptides of the so‐ called double‐glycine type. These leader peptides share consensus sequences and also a common processing site with two conserved glycine residues In positions ‐1 and 2. The double‐glycine‐type leader peptides are unrelated to the N‐terminal… 
Insights into AMS/PCAT transporters from biochemical and structural characterization of a double Glycine motif protease
TLDR
The protease domain (LahT150) of a transporter from a lanthipeptide biosynthetic operon in Lachnospiraceae is characterized and it is demonstrated that this protease can remove the leader peptide from a diverse set of peptides.
Structural basis of substrate recognition by a polypeptide processing and secretion transporter
TLDR
A model of how substrate cleavage, ATP hydrolysis, and substrate translocation are coordinated in a transport cycle is proposed.
In vitro reconstitution and substrate specificity of a lantibiotic protease.
TLDR
The purification and in vitro activity of the N-terminal protease domain of LctT (LctT150) is reported, and its use for the in vitro production of lacticin 481 is reported.
Lantibiotic Transporter Requires Cooperative Functioning of the Peptidase Domain and the ATP Binding Domain*
TLDR
Observations suggest that the leader peptide is cleaved off inside the cells before peptide secretion; both PEP and ABD are important for NukT peptidase activity, and cooperation between these two domainsinside the cells is indispensable for proper functioning of Nuk T.
In vitro activity of a recombinant ABC transporter protein in the processing of plantaricin E pre-peptide
TLDR
The heterologous expression, purification, and characterization of PlnE pre-peptide, ABC transporter, and accessory protein from Lactobacillus plantarum LR/14 in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) strain were reported, suggesting that accessory protein is not involved in cleavage, but it might help in the transport of mature plantaricins across the membrane.
The importance of the leader sequence for directing lanthionine formation in lacticin 481.
TLDR
Surprisingly, a conserved Glu located in a ring that appears conserved in many class II lantibiotics, including those not belonging to the lacticin 481 subgroup, is not essential for antimicrobial activity of lactic in 481.
Membrane Topology of the Lactococcal Bacteriocin ATP-binding Cassette Transporter Protein LcnC
TLDR
It is concluded that the processing of the bacteriocin LcnA to its mature form takes place at the cytosolic side of the cytoplasmic membrane.
Double‐glycine‐type leader peptides direct secretion of bacteriocins by ABC transporters: colicin V secretion in Lactococcus lactis
TLDR
To investigate the role that these leader peptides play in the recognition of the precursor by the ABC transporters, the leader peptide of leucocin A, lactococcin A or colicin V were fused to divergicin C, a bacteriocin from Carnobacterlum divergens that is secreted via the cell's general secretion pathway.
Structural and dynamic studies of the peptidase domain from Clostridium thermocellum PCAT1
TLDR
This study describes CtA interactions with PEP domain and PCAT1 transporter in detergent micelles using solution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and offers fresh insight into the ATP‐mediated association between PEP and transmembrane domains as a putative mechanism to optimize peptide cleavage by regulating the width and flexibility of the enzyme active site.

Genetic analysis of an MDR‐like export system: the secretion of colicin V.
TLDR
It was found that the CvaA component of the colicin V export system shows amino acid sequence similarities with another component involved in hemolysin export, HlyD, and the role of the second component in these systems and the possibility that other members of the MDR‐like subfamily will also have corresponding second components are discussed.
The leader peptide of colicin V shares consensus sequences with leader peptides that are common among peptide bacteriocins produced by gram-positive bacteria.
TLDR
The findings strongly indicate that colicin V belongs to a family of small peptide bacteriocins that have been found previously only among the Gram-positive lactic acid bacteria.
Lantibiotics : An Overview and Conformational Studies on Gallidermin and Pep5
TLDR
Conformational analysis of the lantibiotics, as well as their prepeptides, provide information about their mode of action and the steps of biosynthesis, and by using the isolated novel enzymes, a gene technological construction of a variety of similarly modified polypeptide will be available in the near future.
Molecular analysis of the lactacin F operon
TLDR
Molecular analysis of the lactacin F DNA region characterized a small operon that codes for three open reading frames, designated lafA, lafX, and ORFZ, and both peptide Z and the lactococcin M immunity protein are predicted to be integral membrane proteins with four putative transmembrane segments.
Structural model of ATP-binding proteing associated with cystic fibrosis, multidrug resistance and bacterial transport
TLDR
A tertiary structure model of the ATP-binding cassettes characteristic of this class of transport system is presented, based on similarities between the predicted secondary structures of members of this family and the previously determined structure of adenylate kinase.
Molecular analyses of the lactococcin A gene cluster from Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar diacetylactis WM4
TLDR
A secretion apparatus that is essential for the full expression of active lactococcin A is postulated, and the proteins that they encoded showed similarities to proteins of signal sequence-independent secretion systems.
A novel lactococcal bacteriocin whose activity depends on the complementary action of two peptides
A lactococcal bacteriocin, termed lactococcin G, was purified to homogeneity by a simple four-step purification procedure that includes ammonium sulfate precipitation, binding to a cation exchanger
Mode of Action of Lactococcin B, a Thiol-Activated Bacteriocin from Lactococcus lactis
TLDR
Uptake and efflux studies of different solutes suggest that LcnB forms pores in the cytoplasmic membrane of sensitive L. lactis cells in the absence of a proton motive force.
Secretion of cyclolysin, the calmodulin‐sensitive adenylate cyclase‐haemolysin bifunctional protein of Bordetella pertussis.
TLDR
Complementation and functional studies indicate that the B.pertussis adenylate cyclase‐haemolysin bifunctional protein is secreted by a mechanism similar to that described for E.coli alpha‐haEMolysin, requiring, in addition to the CyaB and cyaD gene products, the presence of a third gene product specified by the cyaE gene.
