Genome Property Definition Page

Nameaccessory Sec system, Actinobacterial type
DescriptionThe gene symbol secA2 arose twice in the literature for accessory secretory systems acting in addition to the SecA (pre)protein translocase system. This genome property describes the form as it occurs in Mycobacterium tuberculosis and M. smegmatis. The two SecA2 families are both related to SecA but probably are not orthologous to each other.
