FUNCTIONPart of the twin-arginine translocation (Tat) system that transports large folded proteins containing a characteristic twin- arginine motif in their signal peptide across membranes. TatA could form the protein-conducting channel of the Tat system.
case <OC:Pseudomonadota> or <OC:Actinomycetota>
SUBUNITThe Tat system comprises two distinct complexes: a TatABC complex, containing multiple copies of TatA, TatB and TatC subunits, and a separate TatA complex, containing only TatA subunits. Substrates initially bind to the TatABC complex, which probably triggers association of the separate TatA complex to form the active translocon.
SUBUNITForms a complex with TatC.
end case
case not defined <Property:Membrane> or <Property:Membrane=1>
SUBCELLULAR LOCATIONCell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein.
else case <Property:Membrane=2>
SUBCELLULAR LOCATIONCell inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein.
end case
SIMILARITYBelongs to the TatA/E family.

Comments Presence of a second copy called TatE in many Enterobacteriaceae. TatA and TatE are functionally equivalent to each other. TatE may be a cryptic gene duplication of tatA. Profile MF_00236 matches both TatA and TatE.
