AtTSPO is a TspO/MBR domain-protein potentially involved in multiple stress regulation in Arabidopsis. As in most angiosperms, AtTSPO is encoded by a single, intronless gene. Expression of AtTSPO is tightly regulated both at the transcriptional and post-translational levels. It has been shown previously that overexpression of AtTSPO in plant cell can be detrimental, and the protein was detected in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi stacks, contrasting with previous findings and suggesting… 

Figures from this paper

The Arabidopsis translocator protein (AtTSPO) is regulated at multiple levels in response to salt stress and perturbations in tetrapyrrole metabolism
It is proposed that AtTSPO may play a role in transporting tetrapyrrole intermediates during salt stress and other conditions in which tetrapirrole metabolism is compromised.
The ABA-regulated Arabidopsis TSPO is an ER/Golgi localized heme binding membrane protein and a potential scavenger of porphyrins via an autophagy-dependent degradation mechanism
The data show a complex interaction between heme binding and subsequent selective autophagy, resulting in downregulation of AtTSPO and probably the scavenging of excess heme through this mechanism, the first report of heme-dependent protein degradation in higher plants.
The Arabidopsis Abiotic Stress-Induced TSPO-Related Protein Reduces Cell-Surface Expression of the Aquaporin PIP2;7 through Protein-Protein Interactions and Autophagic Degradation[C][W][OPEN]
Data support a physiological role for TSPO in regulating the cell-surface expression of PIP2;7 during abiotic stress conditions through protein-protein interaction and demonstrate an aquaporin regulatory mechanism involving T SPO.
Multiple Lines of Evidence Localize Signaling, Morphology, and Lipid Biosynthesis Machinery to the Mitochondrial Outer Membrane of Arabidopsis[W][OA]
A quantitative mass spectrometry analysis of highly enriched and prefractionated samples identified 42 proteins, 27 of which were novel, more than doubling the number of confirmed outer membrane proteins in plant mitochondria and suggesting novel functions for the plant outer mitochondrial membrane.
Broad and Complex Roles of NBR1-Mediated Selective Autophagy in Plant Stress Responses
Over the past several years, important progress has been made in the discovery of specific cargo proteins of plant NBR1 and their roles in the regulation of plant heat stress memory, plant-viral interaction and special protein secretion and the potential significance of N BR1-mediated selective autophagy in broad plant responses to both biotic and abiotic stresses is discussed.
Comprehensive analysis of mitochondria in roots and hypocotyls of soybean under flooding stress using proteomics and metabolomics techniques.
It is suggested that flooding directly impairs electron transport chains, although NADH production increases in the mitochondria through the tricarboxylic acid cycle.
Thermopriming-Induced Autophagy in Shoot Apical Meristem of Arabidopsis
Autophagy, a conserved mechanism for cell survival in plants will be activated in response to the thermopriming which is a promoted acquired resistance stimulus.
Protein degradation mechanisms modulate abscisic acid signaling and responses during abiotic stress.

Transport of Axl2p Depends on Erv14p, an ER–Vesicle Protein Related to the Drosophila cornichon Gene Product
The polarity defect of erv14Δ yeast cells is reminiscent of cornichon mutants, in which egg chambers fail to establish proper asymmetry during early stages of oogenesis, and an unforeseen conservation in mechanisms producing cell polarity shared between yeast and Drosophila is suggested.
A mitochondrial protein homologous to the mammalian peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor is essential for stress adaptation in plants.
It is hypothesized that PpTSPO1 acts to direct porphyrin precursors to the mitochondria for heme formation, and is involved in the removal of photoreactive tetrapyrrole intermediates.

Rer1p appears to be one of the common limiting components in the retrieval machinery for ER membrane proteins, and the results suggest that Sec71p and Sec63p depend on ER-Golgi recycling, at least partly, for ER localization.
Membrane Dynamics in the Early Secretory Pathway
This review has attempted to provide the reader with a critical, yet balanced overview of this rapidly expanding research area, and has contrasted a particular event or parameter with the corresponding situation in yeast or mammalian cells.
Endocytic and Secretory Traffic in Arabidopsis Merge in the Trans-Golgi Network/Early Endosome, an Independent and Highly Dynamic Organelle[W]
Examination of secretory and endocytotic trafficking in Arabidopsis provides evidence that both endocytic and secretory cargo pass through the trans-Golgi network/early endosome (TGN/EE) and demonstrates that cargo in late endosomes/multivesicular bodies is destined for vacuolar degradation.
Translocator Protein 2 Is Involved in Cholesterol Redistribution during Erythropoiesis*
Overexpression of TSPO2 in erythroid cells resulted in the redistribution of intracellular free cholesterol, an essential step in nucleus expulsion during erythrocyte maturation during mammalian erythropoiesis.
A novel Arabidopsis thaliana protein is a functional peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor.
Results suggest that the PBR like protein is involved in steroid import and is directing protoporphyrinogen IX to the mitochondrial site of protoheme formation.
Subcellular Localization and Membrane Topology of the Melon Ethylene Receptor CmERS11
The membrane topology and subcellular localization of CmERS1, a melon (Cucumis melo) ethylene receptor that has three putative transmembrane domains at the N terminus, are investigated to better understand their biochemical functions.
Efficient ER Exit and Vacuole Targeting of Yeast Sna2p Require Two Tyrosine‐Based Sorting Motifs
Sna2p is the first yeast protein in which two YXXØ motifs have been identified and both were shown to be functional at two different steps of the secretory pathway, ER exit and Golgi‐to‐vacuole transport.
Correct Targeting of Plant ARF GTPases Relies on Distinct Protein Domains
The results suggest that the targeting of ARF GTPases to the correct membranes may not only depend on interactions with effectors but also relies on distinct protein domains and further binding partners on the Golgi surface.
