General annotation (Comments)

Function

The central subunit of the protein translocation channel SecYEG. Consists of two halves formed by TMs 1-5 and 6-10. These two domains form a lateral gate at the front which open onto the bilayer between TMs 2 and 7, and are clamped together by SecE at the back. The channel is closed by both a pore ring composed of hydrophobic SecY resides and a short helix (helix 2A) on the extracellular side of the membrane which forms a plug. The plug probably moves laterally to allow the channel to open. The ring and the pore may move independently By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_01465

Subunit structure

Component of the Sec protein translocase complex. Heterotrimer consisting of SecY, SecE and SecG subunits. The heterotrimers can form oligomers, although 1 heterotrimer is thought to be able to translocate proteins. Interacts with the ribosome. Interacts with SecDF, and other proteins may be involved. Interacts with SecA By similarity.

Subcellular location

Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein By similarity HAMAP-Rule MF_01465.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the SecY/SEC61-alpha family.
