SEC61 Sec61p

Sec61, Sec61p, Sec61alpha
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the SECY/SEC61- alpha family. It appears to play a crucial role in the insertion of secretory and membrane polypeptides into the endoplasmic reticulum. This protein found to be tightly associated with membrane-bound ribosomes, either directly or through adaptor proteins. This gene encodes an alpha subunit of the heteromeric SEC61 complex, which also contains beta and gamma subunits. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on Sec61
Sec63 and Xbp1 regulate IRE1α activity and polycystic disease severity.

Decatransin, a new natural product inhibiting protein translocation at the Sec61/SecYEG translocon.
Hoepfner et al., Basel, Switzerland. In J Cell Sci, Apr 2015
Chemogenomic profiling in S. cerevisiae indicated that the Sec61 translocon complex, the machinery for protein translocation and membrane insertion at the endoplasmic reticulum, is the target.
Proteasome 19S RP binding to the Sec61 channel plays a key role in ERAD.
Römisch et al., Saarbrücken, Germany. In Plos One, 2014
This indicates that the interaction between the 19S RP and the Sec61 channel is dependent on conformational changes in Sec61p hinging on loop 7. The sec61-S353C mutant had no measurable ER import defects and did not cause ER stress in intact cells, but reduced ER-export of a 19S RP-dependent misfolded protein when proteasomes were limiting in a cell-free assay.

Cross-presentation of synthetic long peptides by human dendritic cells: a process dependent on ERAD component p97/VCP but Not sec61 and/or Derlin-1.
Guilloux et al., Nantes, France. In Plos One, 2013
Our data support a role for the ER-associated degradation machinery (ERAD)-related protein p97/VCP in the transport of SLP16-40 from early endosomes to the cytoplasm but formally exclude both sec61 and Derlin-1 as possible retro-translocation channels for cross-presentation.

Calmodulin regulation of the calcium-leak channel Sec61 is unique to vertebrates.
Jung et al., Osnabrück, Germany. In Channels (austin), 2011
CaM binding to the cytosolic N-terminus of Sec61alpha is involved in limiting Ca(2+)-leakage from the ER in C. familiaris but not S. cerevisiae.
Stability and function of the Sec61 translocation complex depends on the Sss1p tail-anchor sequence.

Silencing the SEC61A1 gene using two different siRNAs in HeLa cells for 96 hours had little effect on cell growth and viability. However, calcium leakage from the ER was greatly decreased in the SEC61A1-silenced cells.

Cytotoxic ribosome-inactivating lectins from plants.
Lord et al., Coventry, United Kingdom. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2004
Cell entry by ricin involves the following steps: (i) binding to cell-surface glycolipids and glycoproteins bearing beta-1,4-linked galactose residues through the lectin activity of the B-chain (RTB); (ii) uptake by endocytosis and entry into early endosomes; (iii) transfer by vesicular transport to the trans-Golgi network; (iv) retrograde vesicular transport through the Golgi complex and into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER); (v) reduction of the disulfide bond connecting the A- and B-chains; (vi) a partial unfolding of the A-chain (RTA) to enable it to translocate across the ER membrane via the Sec61p translocon using the pathway normally followed by misfolded ER proteins for targeting to the ER-associated degradation (ERAD) machinery; (vi) refolding in the cytosol into a protease-resistant, enzymatically active structure; (vii) interaction with the sarcin-ricin domain (SRD) of the large ribosome subunit RNA followed by cleavage of a single N-glycosidic bond in the RNA to generate a depurinated, inactive ribosome.
Ricin. Mechanisms of cytotoxicity.
Roberts et al., Coventry, United Kingdom. In Toxicol Rev, 2002
Cell entry by ricin involves a series of steps: (i) binding, via the ricin B chain (RTB), to a range of cell surface glycolipids or glycoproteins having beta-1,4-linked galactose residues; (ii) uptake into the cell by endocytosis; (iii) entry of the toxin into early endosomes; (iv) transfer, by vesicular transport, of ricin from early endosomes to the trans-Golgi network; (v) retrograde vesicular transport through the Golgi complex to reach the endoplasmic reticulum; (vi) reduction of the disulphide bond connecting the ricin A chain (RTA) and the RTB; (vii) partial unfolding of the RTA to render it translocationally-competent to cross the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane via the Sec61p translocon in a manner similar to that followed by misfolded ER proteins that, once recognised, are targeted to the ER-associated protein degradation (ERAD) machinery; (viii) avoiding, at least in part, ubiquitination that would lead to rapid degradation by cytosolic proteasomes immediately after membrane translocation when it is still partially unfolded; (ix) refolding into its protease-resistant, biologically active conformation; and (x) interaction with the ribosome to catalyse the depurination reaction.
