Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: putative protein secretion protein for export



Gene: gspI Accession Numbers: G7708 (EcoCyc), b3330, ECK3317

Synonyms: yheH

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Component of: GspC-O secreton complex (extended summary available)

Summary:
In Escherichia coli, gspI is a member of an operon of genes (gspC-O) which are not normally expressed [Francetic00] but are homologous to those encoding the secreton, or type II secretion machinery in Klebsiella oxytoca and Aeromonase hydrophila, among others [Francetic96]. The GspG, H, I, J and K proteins are similar to type IV pilus subunits [Nunn93], [Bleves98] and are referred to as pseudopilins [Okabe00]. Deletion mutation studies showed that the pseudopilins (with the exception of GspH) are required for protein secretion [Possot00].

Summary:
GspC-O, the type II secretion or secreton complex in Escherichia coli has also been known as the general secretory pathway (GSP) for the export of proteins across the outer membranes of gram-negative bacteria [Pugsley93]. Translocation across the cytoplasmic membrane prior to secreton-dependent secretion can take place via the signal peptide-dependent Sec pathway or the twin-arginine translocation (TAT) system [Voulhoux01]. After transport across the outer membrane, the translocated proteins may be either released into the medium or stay attached to the outer membrane and assembled into surface organelles [Pugsley93, Pugsley98]. The secreton facilitates the extrusion of folded proteins through a putative large gated pore in the outer membrane [Pugsley93]. Although Escherichia coli K-12 does not secrete endogenous proteins, the gsp genes of E. coli are orthologs of those in other secretons [Francetic96], including those of the pullulanase (pul) secretion pathway of Klebsiella oxytoca. The pulO gene product has been shown to be an enzyme required for processing of PulG as well as PulH, PulI and PulJ [Pugsley93a, Strom94]. Complementation studies have shown that the pulO homolog, gspO, is capable of complementing the processing function in a pulO deletion mutant [Francetic96]. The pulG homolog, gspG, has been shown to be capable of complementing a pulG mutation when expressed under the control of a lac promoter [Francetic96]. Transcription of the gspC-O operon was shown to be silenced in wild-type E. coli K-12 by the nucleoid structuring protein H-NS. Deletion mutants lacking H-NS and with the gsp genes present on a multiple-copy-number plasmid have been shown to express the secreton genes and promote the efficient secretion of the co-regulated endochitinase ChiA [Francetic00]. Expression of gspC-O also resulted in formation of pili composed of the GspG pseudopilin when extra copies of gspG were supplied on a second plasmid [Vignon03].
