The antibacterial peptide toxin colicin V is exported from Escherichia coli cells by a signal sequence-independent, ABC export system. Export requires at least three proteins-membrane fusion protein CvaA, ABC export protein CvaB, and outer membrane protein TolC. The cvaA gene also encodes a second protein, CvaA, initiated from an in-frame translational re-start within the cvaA coding sequence. To determine whether the internally encoded CvaA protein also functions in the export pathway, the… CONTINUE READING
