Energy is required for maturation of exported proteins in Escherichia coli.


It has been established in numerous cases that proteins which are exported from Escherichia coli are synthesized on membrane-bound polysomes in precursor forms which are proteolytically cleaved to generate the mature species. Here we present evidence that at least one step in the export of proteins requires energy. Energy requirements for processing of the… (More)
