Characterization of the yaeL gene product and its S2P-protease motifs in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

An Escherichia coli open reading frame, yaeL, encodes a predicted homolog of human site-2 protease (S2P), a putative membrane-bound zinc metalloproteinase involved in the proteolytic activation of regulatory factors for sterol biosynthesis and for stress responses. The potential importance of YaeL in processes analogous to the regulated intramembrane… (More)
