SecA is the ATP-driven force generator for the Sec-dependent translocation of proteins across the inner membrane of Estcherichia coli. Together with an integral membranc protein complex, consisting of the SecY, SecE and SecG proteins, SecA constitutes the translocase (reviewed in Wickner el al., 1991; Driessen et al., 1998). SecA is the precursor protein binding subunit, and the only ATPase involved in the translocation process. Zee: Summary and concluding remarks.
