A mutation has been isolated in the Bacillus subtilis secA gene (secA10) which allows cell growth and residual protein translocation in the presence of 1.5 mM sodium azide. Besides conferring resistance to sodium azide, the corresponding SecA10 mutant protein, in which glutamic acid at position 338 has been changed to glycine, seems to possess a secretion… CONTINUE READING
