The Toc complex at the outer envelope of chloroplasts initiates the import of nuclear-encoded preproteins from the cytosol into the organelle. The core of the Toc complex is composed of two receptor GTPases, Toc159 and Toc34, as well as Toc75, a beta-barrel membrane channel. Toc159 is equally distributed between a soluble cytoplasmic form and a membrane… CONTINUE READING
