Structure and mechanism of the proton-driven motor that powers Type 9 secretion and gliding motility

Abstract:

Three classes of ion-driven protein motors have been identified to date: ATP synthase, the bacterial flagellar motor and a proton-driven motor that powers gliding motility and the type 9 protein secretion system in Bacteroidetes bacteria. Here, we present cryo-electron microscopy structures of the gliding motility/type 9 protein secretion system motors GldLM from Flavobacterium johnsoniae and PorLM from Porphyromonas gingivalis. The motor is an asymmetric inner membrane protein complex in whi...
