MetaCyc Polypeptide: Inner membrane ALBINO3-like protein 2

Gene: ALB3.2 Accession Number: G-12835 (MetaCyc)

Species: Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

ALB3.2 shares homology with bacterial YidC and yeast Oxa1 which appear to function in membrane protein integration and protein complex stabilization [Benz09]. The albino3-like protein 2 is required for the insertion of some light-harvesting complexes (LHC) proteins into the thylakoid membrane [Gohre06].

Locations: plastid, cytoplasm

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 44.74 kD (from nucleotide sequence)
