Abstract

The twin-arginine translocation pathway operates in the thylakoid membrane of chloroplasts and in the plasma membrane of most free-living bacteria. Its main function is to transport fully folded proteins across the membrane. Three important tat genes have been identified and the sequences of the encoded proteins, together with the unusual properties of the pathway, indicate that the Tat system is completely different from other protein translocases.
