Structure[ edit ] Channel-forming colicins colicins A, B, E1, Ia, Ib, and N are transmembrane proteins that depolarize the cytoplasmic membrane, leading to dissipation of cellular energy. The second is involved with translocation, co-opting the machinery of the target cell. Translocation[ edit ] Most colicins are able to translocate the outer membrane by a two-receptor system, where one receptor is used for the initial binding and the second for translocation.

The initial binding is to cell surface receptors such as the outer membrane proteins OmpF, FepA, BtuB, Cir and FhuA; colicins have been classified according to which receptors they bind to. Such resistant cells may suffer the lack of a key nutrient such as iron or a B vitamin , but benefit by not being killed.

In his Nobel Laureate speech, Salvador E. Luria speculated that colicins could only be this toxic by causing a domino effect that destabilized the cell membrane. The colicins are highly effective toxins. Genetic organisation[ edit ] Virtually all colicins are carried on plasmids. The two general classes of colicinogenic plasmids are large, low-copy-number plasmids, and small, high-copy-number plasmids.

The larger plasmids carry other genes, as well as the colicin operon. The colicin operons are generally organized with several major genes. These include an immunity gene, a colicin structural gene, and a bacteriocin release protein BRP , or lysis , gene. The immunity gene is often produced constitutively, while the BRP is generally produced only as a read-through of the stop codon on the colicin structural gene. The colicin itself is repressed by the SOS response and may be regulated in other ways, as well.

Retaining the colicin plasmid is very important for cells that live with their relatives, because if a cell loses the immunity gene, it quickly becomes subject to destruction by circulating colicin. This suicidal production mechanism would appear to be very costly, except for the fact that it is regulated by the SOS response , which responds to significant DNA damage.

In short, colicin production may only occur in terminally ill cells. The Professor Kleanthous Research Group at the University of Oxford study colicins extensively as a model system for characterising and investigating protein-protein interactions and recognition.

Nezragore Assembly and channel opening in a bacterial drug efflux machine. Dolicin, colicins, drug efflux, membrane translocation, toxins. In fact, addition of the nonprotective peptide actually enhanced killing, d1 effect of an unknown mechanism that has been observed before when using bovine serum albumin as a control for added protein in similar in vivo protection experiments with colicin Ia and its T domain Those results suggested that significant binding to TolC by E1 could occur directly, without prior binding to the BtuB receptor.
