In contrast to Gram-negative bacteria, secretory proteins of Gram-positive bacteria only need to traverse a single membrane to enter the extracellular environment. For this reason, Gram-positive bacteria (e.g. various Bacillus species) are often used in industry for the commercial production of extracellular proteins that can be produced in yields of several grams per liter culture medium. The central components of the main protein translocation system (Sec system) of Gram-negative and Gram… CONTINUE READING
