Folding and Self-Assembly of the TatA Translocation Pore Based on a Charge Zipper Mechanism

► Charge zippers as a new concept for folding and assembly of membrane proteins ► 3D structure of TatA pore explains translocation of folded proteins across membrane ► Ladders of salt bridges connect an amphiphilic palisade that can span the bilayer ► MD simulations and specific charge mutations support the charge zipper model
