Abstract

Bacterial adhesins mediate the attachment of bacteria to their niches, such as the tissue of an infected host. Adhesins have to be transported across the cell envelope to become active and during this secretion process they fold into their final conformation. This chapter focuses on the biogenesis of the classical monomeric autotransporter proteins, which are the most ubiquitous class of secreted proteins in Gram-negative bacteria. They may function as adhesins, but other functions are also known. Autotransporter proteins have a modular structure and consist of an N-terminal signal peptide and a C-terminal translocator domain with in between the secreted passenger domain that harbours the functions. The signal peptide directs the transport across the inner membrane to the periplasm via the Sec machinery. The translocator domain inserts into the outer membrane and facilitates the transport of the passenger to the cell surface. In this chapter, I will review our current knowledge of the secretion of classical monomeric autotransporters and the methods that have been used to assess their folding during the translocation, both in vitro and in vivo.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 July 2014.
All research outputs
#17,118,920
of 21,200,018 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#3,043
of 4,676 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#143,826
of 202,820 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#6
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,200,018 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,676 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.6. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 202,820 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
