Nametype VII secretion, Actinobacteria form
DescriptionType VII secretion (T7S) is also called ESAT-6-, SNM-, and ESX-secretion. It occurs in Mycobacterium, which has an impermeable cell envelope that contains long-chain mycolic acids in an outer membrane, and T7S provides a means to transport proteins through this barrier. Multiple T7S loci can occur in one species, with different secretion targets for different systems. The system includes a subtilisin-like protease called mycosin and membrane proteins with a new nomenclature in starting with ecc (esx conserved component).
