The TGD4 Family [Function: Biogenesis/Secretion] Seed alignment | Full alignment in OMPdb

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.
