Abstract

We have examined the structural requirements at the NH2-terminal region of the lipoprotein for its assembly in the outer membrane of Escherichia coli by constructing a hybrid protein consisting of an NH2-terminal portion of the prolipoprotein, consisting of the signal peptide and 9 amino acid residues of lipoprotein, and the entire beta-lactamase sequence. The results from this study indicate that the hybrid protein is modified with glyceride, processed in a globomycin-sensitive step, and localized in the outer membrane. The translocation of the hybrid protein across the cytoplasmic membrane occurs post-translationally and is inhibited by carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenylhydrazone. Our results, therefore, indicate that the signal peptide and 9 amino acid residues of prolipoprotein are sufficient for its modification, processing, and localization in the outer membrane.
