Domaini

The signal peptide, cleaved at the inner membrane, guides the autotransporter protein to the periplasmic space. Then, insertion of the C-terminal translocator domain in the outer membrane forms a hydrophilic pore for the translocation of the passenger domain to the bacterial cell surface, with subsequent cleavage (By similarity).By similarity
