Subunit of: LolCDE ABC lipoprotein transporter
Subunit composition of LolCDE ABC lipoprotein transporter = [LolE][LolD]2[LolC]
Localization of lipoproteins to the periplasmic surface of the outer membrane in Escherichia coli requires a lipoprotein-specific sorting complex, made up of five proteins (LolABCDE) [Narita04].
Lipoproteins in E.coli, as well as in other bacteria, are membrane proteins that have covalently-attached lipids at their amino-terminal cysteine residue. Within the bacterial envelope of E. coli there are more than 90 species of lipoproteins, located on the periplasmic surfaces of both the inner and outer membrane, and responsible for a variety of functions. [Narita04].
All lipoproteins are thought to be synthesized with an N-terminal signal sequence which allows for their targeting to the Sec secretion system and subsequent translocation across the cytoplasmic membrane [Duong97]. After translocation across the cytoplasmic membrane, the signal peptide sequence is cleaved by lipoprotein-specific signal peptidase II followed by aminoacylation of the terminal cysteine residue [Pugsley93]. The mature form of the lipoprotein is then localized to either the inner or outer membrane. If the amino-acid residue next to the terminal cysteine is aspartate, then the lipoprotein is localized to the inner membrane. In all other cases, the lipoprotein is targeted for translocation across the periplasmic space to the outer membrane [Yamaguchi88].
LolA is a periplasmic proteinous factor which serves as a hydrophobic container, allowing for lipoproteins to become solubilized, thereby facilitating their translocation across the hydrophilic periplasmic space [Takeda03]. LolB is an outer membrane receptor for the LolA-lipoprotein complex [Yokota99]. LolCDE is a unique ABC transporter involved in the export of lipoproteins to the outer membrane [Yakushi00]. Sequence analysis indicates that LolC and LolE are integral membrane proteins and LolD is an ABC ATPase. In in vivo photo crosslinking studies LolA was observed to generate cross linked products with LolC but not with LolE suggesting that the two integral membrane components may have distinct functions [Okuda09]. LolCDE has been shown to be capable of utilizing ATP, GTP or UTP in the release process [Yakushi98], [Yakushi00].
