Comments "Most proteins of E. coli found in the inner or outer membrane or in the periplasmic space are synthesized with signal peptides that are cleaved from the original translation products by one of the signal peptidases found in the membrane. Processing of signal peptides proceeds with a half-life < 1 min."
