Chloroplast Translocon Revealed Protein translocation across biological membranes requires supramolecular complexes, called translocons. Chloroplasts require translocons in their double-envelope membranes to import thousands of nucleus-encoded proteins synthesized in the cytosol. However, the identity of the translocon at the inner envelope of the chloroplast (TIC) has long been a matter of debate; two proteins, Tic20 and Tic110, have been proposed to be central to protein translocation across… Expand
The TIC complex uncovered: The alternative view on the molecular mechanism of protein translocation across the inner envelope membrane of chloroplasts.

TLDR
An alternative view regarding the TIC transport system in contradistinction to the classical view is proposed and importance of reevaluation of previous works in terms of with what methods these classical Tic proteins such as Tic110 or Tic40 were picked up as TIC constituents at the very beginning is emphasized.

TLDR
It is anticipated that the entire TOC/TIC/ATP motor system, including any novel components, will be conclusively established in the next decade, and findings may lead to an extensively revised view of the evolution and molecular mechanisms of chloroplast protein import. Expand
Characterization of Chloroplast Protein Import without Tic56, a Component of the 1-Megadalton Translocon at the Inner Envelope Membrane of Chloroplasts1
TLDR
The results suggest that despite the severe developmental defects, protein import into Tic56-deficient plastids is functional to a considerable degree, indicating the existence of alternative translocases at the inner envelope membrane. Expand
The novel chloroplast outer membrane kinase KOC1 is a required component of the plastid protein import machinery
TLDR
The data indicate that KOC1 is a functional component of the TOC machinery that phosphorylates import receptors, supports preprotein import, and contributes to efficient chloroplast biogenesis. Expand
Mechanisms of Chloroplast Protein Import in Plants
TLDR
Alternative, mechanistically distinct pathways of protein transport to chloroplasts have been identified; one of these passes through the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus. Expand
Arabidopsis ORANGE protein regulates plastid preprotein import through interacting with Tic proteins.
TLDR
This study found that a DnaJ-like chaperone ORANGE (OR) protein physically interacts with several Tic proteins including Tic20, Tic40, and Tic110 in the classic TIC core complex of the chloroplast import machinery and suggests that OR plays a new and regulatory role in stabilizing key translocons and in facilitating the late stage of plastid preprotein translocation to regulate plastids preprotein import.

Evolution of protein transport to the chloroplast envelope membranes
TLDR
The current knowledge pertaining to chloroplast envelope biogenesis is analyzed and this to bacteria is compared to bacteria. Expand
Protein import into chloroplasts and its regulation by the ubiquitin-proteasome system
TLDR
This review highlights recent advances in understanding of protein import into chloroplasts and how this process is regulated by the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Expand
New insights into the mechanism of chloroplast protein import and its integration with protein quality control, organelle biogenesis and development.
TLDR
The TOC receptor systems have diversified to recognize distinct sets of preproteins, thereby maximizing the efficiency of targeting in response to changes in gene expression during developmental and physiological events that impact organelle function. Expand

TLDR
The recent models of each individual import stage are discussed with regard to short-term strategies that plants might use to potentially acclimate to changes in their environmental conditions and preserve the chloroplast protein homeostasis. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that CIA5 functions as part of the inner membrane protein-conducting channel and may be more important for later stages of leaf development. Expand

Tic20 forms a channel independent of Tic110 in chloroplasts
TLDR
The presented data provide first biochemical evidence to the notion that Tic20 can act as a channel protein within the chloroplast import translocon complex, however, the very low abundance of TIC20 in the inner envelope membranes indicates that it cannot form a major protein translocation channel.

atTic110 Functions as a Scaffold for Coordinating the Stromal Events of Protein Import into Chloroplasts*
TLDR
Binding studies demonstrate that a region of the atTic110-soluble domain selectively associates with chloroplast preproteins at the late stages of membrane translocation and suggest that the domain forms a docking site for pre Proteins as they emerge from the Tic translocon. Expand

It is proposed that Tic20 and Tic22 are core components of the protein translocon of the inner envelope membrane of chloroplasts, providing evidence that the complex corresponds to envelope contact sites that mediate direct transport of preproteins from the cytoplasm to the stromal compartment.

TLDR
The altered expression of the Arabidopsis Tic20 ortholog (atTic20) by antisense expression is altered to suggest that TIC20 functions as a component of the protein-conducting channel at the inner envelope membrane. Expand
