SecB is a molecular chaperone that functions in bacterial post‐translational protein translocation pathway. It maintains newly synthesized precursor polypeptide chains in a translocation‐competent state and guides them to the translocon via its high‐affinity binding to the ligand as well as to the membrane‐embedded ATPase SecA. Recent advances in elucidating the structures of SecB have enabled the examination of protein function in the structural context. Structures of SecB from both… Expand
Functional Implementation of the Posttranslational SecB-SecA Protein-Targeting Pathway in Bacillus subtilis
TLDR
A functional SecB-dependent protein-targeting pathway is implemented into B. subtilis by coexpressing SecB from Escherichia coli together with a SecA hybrid protein, demonstrating that the implemented pathway in fact critically depends on the SecB targeting function. Expand
Dimeric SecA Couples the Preprotein Translocation in an Asymmetric Manner
TLDR
The structures of Escherichia coli Sec intermediates in solution as visualized by negatively stained electron microscopy suggest that during preprotein translocation, the two SecA protomers are different in structure and may play different roles. Expand
The bacterial Sec system is required for the organization and function of the MreB cytoskeleton
TLDR
The data reveal that the secretion system plays an important role in determining the organization and functioning of the cytoskeletal system in bacteria and shows that regulation of MreB by the Sec system is conserved in bacteria. Expand
SecA: a tale of two protomers
TLDR
New approaches must be combined with current tools to gain insight into the functionally relevant quartenary states of SecA and SecYEG during preprotein translocation, as several issues remain puzzling. Expand
Signal peptides are allosteric activators of the protein translocase
TLDR
It is shown that signal peptide have a new role beyond targeting: they are essential allosteric activators of the translocase that renders signal peptides essential for protein secretion. Expand
Micro Review SecA : a tale of two protomersmmi
Bacteria, Archaea and Eukaryotes have evolved a plethora of mechanisms to translocate proteins across their various membranes. The bacterial Sec pathway is ubiquitous and essential for cell viabilityExpand
Two SecA/SecY Systems with Distinct Roles in the Ecological Adaptations of Bacteria
TLDR
It is found that the secretome of bacteria with the strongest functional divergence is enriched for proteins specialized in the interaction with specific environments, and evolutionary signatures that link mutations at secretion proteins to the ecological diversification of bacteria are unravel. Expand
Asp3 mediates multiple protein–protein interactions within the accessory Sec system of Streptococcus gordonii
TLDR
It is shown that the Asps are required for optimal export of GspB independent of the glycosylation process, and that Asp3 is a central element mediating multiple interactions among accessory Sec components that are essential for GSpB transport to the cell surface. Expand
Sec- and Tat-mediated protein secretion across the bacterial cytoplasmic membrane--distinct translocases and mechanisms.
TLDR
In bacteria, two major pathways exist to secrete proteins across the cytoplasmic membrane: the general Secretion route and the Twin-arginine translocation pathway, which catalyses the translocation of secretory proteins in their folded state. Expand
MifM, a Regulatory Nascent Chain That Monitors Membrane Protein Integration
TLDR
This chapter highlights the unique mechanism and regulation of elongation arrest revealed for MifM, a ribosomesome arrest polypeptide that stalls the ribosome at multiple consecutive codons rather than at a single site. Expand

Structural determinants of SecB recognition by SecA in bacterial protein translocation
TLDR
The structure explains the importance of the zinc-binding motif and conserved residues at the C terminus of SecA in its high-affinity binding with SecB and suggests a model of SecB-SecA interaction and its implication for the mechanism of pre-protein transfer in bacterial protein translocation. Expand
Sites of interaction between SecA and the chaperone SecB, two proteins involved in export
TLDR
Details of molecular interactions between SecA and SecB are reported, which may serve as conformational switches and the energetics of the interactions by titration calorimetry and the hydrodynamic properties of complexes stabilized by both interactions or each interaction singly using sedimentation velocity centrifugation. Expand
Substrate Specificity of the SecB Chaperone*
TLDR
SecB may rather be a general chaperone whose involvement in translocation is mediated by interactions of SecB and signal sequences ofSecB-bound preproteins with the translocation apparatus, supported by the finding that SecB binds denatured luciferase, thereby allowing subsequent refolding by the DnaK system. Expand
Asymmetric binding between SecA and SecB two symmetric proteins: implications for function in export.
TLDR
It is suggested that disruption of this interface by SecB facilitates conformational changes of SecA that are crucial to the transfer of the precursor from SecB to SecA. Expand
The molecular chaperone SecB is released from the carboxy‐terminus of SecA during initiation of precursor protein translocation
TLDR
It is concluded that the SecB‐binding site on SecA is confined to the extreme carboxy‐terminus of the SecA dimer, and that SecB is released from this site at the onset of translocation. Expand
The interaction between the chaperone SecB and its ligands: Evidence for multiple subsites for binding
TLDR
T titration calorimetry, analytical ultracentrifugation, and electrospray ionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry are used to obtain evidence that distinguishable subsites exist in the SecB tetramer that would interact with extended flexible stretches of polypeptides and with hydrophobic regions. Expand
Complexes between Protein Export Chaperone SecB and SecA
TLDR
Evidence that at least two regions of SecA are involved in the formation of active complexes with SecB is presented, including the extreme carboxyl-terminal 21 aminoacyl residues involved in activation of the complexes. Expand
Preprotein transfer to the Escherichia coli translocase requires the co‐operative binding of SecB and the signal sequence to SecA
TLDR
It is concluded that the SecB–SecA interaction is needed to dissociate the mature preprotein domain from SecB and that binding of the signal sequence domain to SecA is required to ensure efficient transfer of the preprotein to the translocase. Expand
Zinc stabilizes the SecB binding site of SecA.
TLDR
It is concluded that the SecB binding domain of SecA is stabilized by a zinc ion that promotes the functional binding of SecB to SecA. Expand
Dimeric SecA is essential for protein translocation.
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that membrane-bound SecA dimer is critical for the protein translocation cycle, although these results cannot exclude participation of SecA monomer at some stage in the translocation process. Expand
