Single-particle analysis of cryo-electron microscopy structures elucidates the membrane complex of the mycobacterial ESX-5 type VII secretion system. This secretion pathway is used to deliver virulence factors from the bacterial cytoplasm into the host cell through a channel in the bacterial inner membrane.
