Abstract

Chloroplasts import more than 90% of their protein constituents from the cytosol. The import is mediated by translocon complexes located in the chloroplast envelope and the stroma. This review focuses on the two GTPases in the Toc (translocon at the outer envelope membrane of chloroplasts) complex. Hypotheses are presented about gating across the outer membrane and the possible functional states of the GTPases.
