TGD4 is conserved evolutionarily from green algae to higher plants. As indicated by the secondary structure prediction made with PROF. TGD4 appears to form multiple beta sheets especially near the C-terminus. Furthermore, it is proposed that TGD4 is a transmembrane protein, probably a beta barrel protein, present in the outer membrane of the chloroplast with its N-terminus slightly faced to the cytosol.
