Comments [?]

case <OC:Bacteria>
Function Part of the Sec protein translocase complex. Interacts with the SecYEG preprotein conducting channel. SecDF uses the proton motive force (PMF) to complete protein translocation after the ATP-dependent function of SecA.
else case <OC:Archaea>
Function Involved in protein export.
end case
case <OC:Cyanobacteria> and not <OC:Gloeobacter>
Function Probably participates in protein translocation into and across both the cytoplasmic and thylakoid membranes in cyanobacterial cells.
end case
case <OC:Proteobacteria>
Subunit Forms a complex with SecD. Part of the essential Sec protein translocation apparatus which comprises SecA, SecYEG and auxiliary proteins SecDF-YajC and YidC.
else case <OC:Bacteria>
Subunit Forms a complex with SecD. Part of the essential Sec protein translocation apparatus which comprises SecA, SecYEG and auxiliary proteins SecDF. Other proteins may also be involved.
else case <OC:Archaea>
Subunit Part of the protein translocation apparatus. Forms a complex with SecD.
end case
case not defined <Property:Membrane> or <Property:Membrane=1>
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
else case <Property:Membrane=2>
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the SecD/SecF family. SecF subfamily.

Fusion Nter: MF_01463 (SecD); Cter: None
Comments Often found as a SecDF fusion protein. In bacteria the operon consists of secDF. Some archaea have a secFD operon, in others the genes are separated on the genome.
