The archaeal twin-arginine translocation pathway.

The twin-arginine translocation (Tat) pathway is a system with the unique ability to export proteins in a fully folded conformation. Its main components are TatA, TatB and TatC, all of which are required for Tat-dependent export. The Tat pathway is found in several Archaea, and in most of them a moderate number of predicted Tat-dependent substrates are… CONTINUE READING
