A corrigendum on
Antibiotic Resistance Mediated by the MacB ABC Transporter Family: A Structural and Functional Perspective

by Greene, N. P., Kaplan, E., Crow, A., and Koronakis, V. (2018). Front. Microbiol. 9:950. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00950

In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 6 as published. The labels “ATP hydrolysis” and “ATP binding” were inverted; the corrected Figure 6 appears below. The error does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.

FIGURE 6

Figure 6. Mechanotransmission mechanism of MacB. ATP binding and hydrolysis cause large, transmembrane conformational changes in MacB structure. Rather than transporting substrates across the inner membrane, MacB-like proteins coordinate reversible dimerization of their NBDs with periplasmic conformational changes. TEP-forming MacB homologs use periplasmic conformational change to drive substrates across the bacterial outer membrane via TolC-like exit ducts. MacB homologs that do not form TEPs are proposed to use similar motions during lipoprotein trafficking and transmembrane signaling. Adapted from Crow et al. (2017).

The original article has been updated.
