The DNA sequence analysis of the F0F1-ATPase operon of the bacterium Mycoplasma pneumoniae predicted that the subunit b, encoded by the gene atpF, is a lipoprotein of the murein lipoprotein type of Escherichia coli. Here we experimentally verify this prediction by metabolic labeling of subunit b with [14C]palmitic acid and by in vivo interfering with the processing of the prolipoprotein form of subunit b by the antibiotic globomycin, a specific inhibitor of the signal peptidase II.
