Comments [?]

Function Part 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:Proteobacteria> or <OC:Actinobacteria>
Subunit The 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.
else
Subunit Forms a complex with TatC.
end case
case not defined <Property:Membrane> or <Property:Membrane=1>
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein.
else case <Property:Membrane=2>
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein.
end case
Similarity Belongs 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.
