The twin arginine transport (Tat) system translocates folded proteins across the bacterial inner membrane. Transport substrates are recognized by means of evolutionarily well-conserved N-terminal signal peptides. The precise role of signal peptides in the actual transport process is not yet fully understood. Potentially, much insight into the molecular details of the transport process could be gained from step-by-step in vitro experiments under controlled conditions. Here, we employ purified… CONTINUE READING
