DESCRIPTION
Also known as SECA_TRIEI, secA. Part of the Sec protein translocase complex. Interacts with the SecYEG preprotein conducting channel. Has a central role in coupling the hydrolysis of ATP to the transfer of proteins into and across the cell membrane, serving as an ATP-driven molecular motor driving the stepwise translocation of polypeptide chains across the membrane., Probably participates in protein translocation into and across both the cytoplasmic and thylakoid membranes in cyanobacterial cells. Monomer and homodimer. Part of the essential Sec protein translocation apparatus which comprises SecA, SecYEG and auxiliary proteins SecDF. Other proteins may also be involved.
