Abstract

Like prokaryotic Sec-dependent protein transport, chloroplasts utilize SecA. However, we observe distinctive requirements for the stimulation of chloroplast SecA ATPase activity; it is optimally stimulated in the presence of galactolipid and only a small fraction of anionic lipid and by Sec-dependent thylakoid signal peptides but not Escherichia coli signal peptides.
