Hold the fold: how delayed folding aids protein secretion

Nicholas McCaul, Ineke Braakman

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


In bacteria, N-terminal signal peptides mark proteins for transport across the plasma membrane. A recent study by Smets et al (2022) followed the folding of a pair of structural twins to shed light on how evolution has optimised the secretory process.
