UNSPECIFIED. (1995) EVIDENCE FOR SECA-INDEPENDENT AND DELTA-PH-INDEPENDENT INSERTION OF D1 INTO THYLAKOIDS. FEBS LETTERS, 368 (2). pp. 263-266. ISSN 0014-5793Full text not available from this repository.
Many nuclear-encoded proteins are targeted into chloroplast thylakoids by an azide sensitive Sec-related mechanism or by a Delta pH-driven mechanism, In this report, the requirements for the integration of chloroplast-encoded thylakoid proteins have been analysed in pulse-labeled intact chloroplasts. We show that the integration of the photosystem II reaction centre protein, D1, continues in the absence of a Delta pH and in the presence of azide. A range of other proteins are similarly targeted to thylakoids in the presence of azide, suggesting that the SecA-related mechanism is not widely used for the targeting of chloroplast-encoded proteins.
