The New Kid on the Block: A Specialized Secretion System during Bacterial Sporulation

Abstract : The transport of proteins across the bacterial cell envelope is mediated by protein complexes called specialized secretion systems. These nanomachines exist in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and have been categorized into different types based on their structural components and function. Interestingly, multiple studies suggest the existence of a protein complex in endospore-forming bacteria that appears to be a new type of specialized secretion system. This protein complex is called the SpoIIIA-SpoIIQ complex and is an exception to the categorical norm since it appears to be a hybrid composed of different parts from well-defined specialized secretion systems. Here we summarize and discuss the current understanding of this complex and its potential role as a specialized secretion system.
