Protein Translocation: The Sec61/SecYEG Translocon Caught in the Act

Abstract

The Sec61/SecYEG complex mediates both the translocation of newly synthesized proteins across the membrane and the integration of transmembrane segments into the lipid bilayer. New cryo-electron microscopy studies show ribosome-channel complexes in action and reveal their repertoire of conformational states.
