Targeting of thylakoidal proteins into chloroplasts by Tracy Gail Knott Download PDF EPUB FB2

Abstract. All cells transport proteins across membranes, but the complexity of protein traffic in plant cells is particularly striking. Plant cells contain a wide variety of organelles, each specialised to carry out particular functions, and each of which contains a distinct complement of by: 4.

Many plastid proteins are additionally re-targeted internally to their final destinations and/or assembled into multimeric protein complexes. This chapter describes some aspects of the current state of knowledge regarding the import, targeting and assembly of proteins within : Steven M.

Theg. TARGETING SEQUENCES. Most precursor proteins are larger than their corresponding plastid-localized forms. The N-terminal transit peptide that is cleaved off the precursor protein upon entry into chloroplasts usually contains stromal-targeting information that is necessary and sufficient for transport of precursors across the two envelope membranes (Keegstra et al., ; de Boer and.

Thus chloroplast protein targeting is a unique and surprisingly complex process. synthesized precursor proteins into chloroplasts, like the protein transport systems of mitochondria and the.

Although targeting of proteins to mitochondria and chloroplasts is generally highly specific, an increasing number of examples have been discovered where the same protein is imported into both.

INTRODUCTION. Chloroplasts in green algae and higher plants contain photosynthetic thylakoid membranes. Four multisubunit protein complexes, photosystem I (PSI), PSII, the ATP-synthase complex, and the cytochrome b 6 f complex, which together comprise 75 to proteins, perform the photosynthetic reactions (see, e.g., Ort and Yocum, ).It can be postulated that the thylakoid Cited by:   In chloroplasts, proteins destined for the thylakoid membrane or lumen are routed from the stroma into the thylakoid membrane and lumen by one of at least four distinct mechanisms: the ΔpH, chloroplast SRP, thylakoid Sec pathways, and an apparently spontaneous insertion mechanism (for review, see Cline and Henry, ; Robinson and Mant, Cited by: In vitro studies in chloroplasts showed quite clearly that a large number of lumenal proteins were transported by a mechanism that did not require any stromal proteins or nucleoside triphosphates, but which depended entirely on the thylakoidal proton gradient (Mould and Cited by: 1.

Chloroplasts are plastids, organelles peculiar to plants (Figure ); there may be from 1 to or more chloroplasts per plasts are considerably larger than the average mitochondrion, being 4–10 µm in diameter, 1–2 µm thick, and bounded by an envelope of two closely juxtaposed membranes, the matrix within the inner membrane being the stroma (Figure ).

DNA in chloroplasts is organized into complexes with proteins, and these are called nucleoids. The synthesis of chloroplast proteins is regulated at various steps. However, a majority of proteins are synthesized in the cytosol, and their proper import into chloroplast compartments is a prerequisite for chloroplast by:   Import of prOEBPTI into isolated chloroplasts and thylakoids demonstrates that the small tightly folded BPTI domain is carried across both the chloroplast envelopes and the delta pH-dependent transmembrane transporter of the thylakoid membrane when.

Chloroplasts originated from the endosymbiosis of ancestral cyanobacteria and maintain transcription and translation machineries for around proteins. Most endosymbiont genes, however, have been transferred to the host nucleus, and the majority of the chloroplast proteome is composed of nucleus-encoded proteins that are biosynthesized in the cytosol and then imported into by: Growth and development of plants ultimately depends on photosynthesis.

Efficient photosynthesis relies on the proper assembly of the membrane components that capture light and convert it into chemical energy.

The purpose of the described research is to determine the basic mechanisms involved in the assembly of the photosynthetic apparatus in thylakoid membranes.

Proteins destined for all compartments, but the outer envelope membrane of chloroplasts, are synthesized as larger precursor proteins with N‐terminal extensions called transit peptides, and targeted to the organelle via a general import pathway (Cline.

That some proteins in chloroplasts are predicted to have mitochondrial presequences is much less surprising, since the dual-targeting of certain proteins to both chloroplasts and mitochondria is well documented (Duchêne et al., ; Millar et al., ).

Overall, the emerging picture of chloroplast protein targeting is rather complex Cited by: About 20 to 30% of proteins synthesized in the bacterial cytoplasm are destined for extracytoplasmic locations (1). They pass the cytoplasmic membrane using specialized transport systems, involving gated pores, energy, and signal peptides to direct protein export.

Two major protein export systems are known, namely, the general secretory (Sec) pathway and the twin-arginine translocation (Tat Author: Kelly May Frain, Jan Maarten van Dijl, Colin Robinson. The chimeric proteins were imported into isolated spinach chloroplasts, and the intraorganellar routing of the proteins was analyzed.

The results obtained show that the N-terminal extensions of both envelope membrane proteins possess a stroma-targeting function only and that the information for the integration into the envelope membrane is.

The Tat pathway for protein translocation across bacterial membranes stands out for its selective handling of fully folded cargo proteins.

In this review, we provide a comprehensive summary of our current understanding of the different known Tat components, their assembly into different complexes, and their specific roles in the protein translocation : Kelly May Frain, Jan Maarten van Dijl, Colin Robinson.

To extend our understanding of chloroplast protein import and the role played by the import machinery component Tic40, we performed a genetic screen for suppressors of chlorotic tic40 knockout mutant Arabidopsis thaliana plants. As a result, two suppressor of tic40 loci, stic1 and stic2, were identified and characterized.

The stic1 locus corresponds to the gene ALBINO4 (ALB4), which encodes a Cited by: 8. Camm and B.R. Green () How the chlorophyll-proteins got their names. Photosyn Res B. Chaal, K. Ishida and () A thylakoidal processing peptidase from the heterokont alga Heterosigma akashiwo.

The constructs will also be transformed into Arabidopsis plants and the effects of accumulation of the uncleaved lumenal proteins on chloroplast development in vivo will be examined.

Nuclear-organelle interactions. Nuclear DNA-encoded proteins that are destined for chloroplasts and mitochondria are translated as precursors on 80S ribosomes in the cytosol and transported into the organelle post-translationally, whereas proteins encoded in the mitochondrial and plastid genomes are translated on prokaryotic-like 70S ribosomes in the organelle itself (reviewed by Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {Tandem duplications of a degenerated GTP-binding domain at the origin of GTPase receptors Toc and thylakoidal SRP}, author = {Hernandez Torres, Jorge and Maldonado, Monica Alexandra Arias and Chomilier, Jacques}, abstractNote = {The evolutionary origin of some nuclear encoded proteins that translocate proteins across the chloroplast envelope remains unknown.

Chlamydomonas chloroplasts were isolated, lysed by hypoosmotic shock, and separated into stroma, thylakoid, and low-density membrane fractions. Low-density membranes are considered to consist of inner envelopes and of transitory membranes between inner envelope and thylakoids ( Cited by: Protein Targeting Protocols Second Edition.
