FFC, Signal recognition particle 54 kDa protein, chloroplastic
Also Known as
SR54C_ARATH, FFC, CPSRP54
Involved in cotranslational and post-translational sorting of thylakoid proteins. Binds GTP specifically. Activates the GTPase activity of CPFTSY when bound together. Required for light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b-binding protein (LHCP) integration into thylakoids. Component of the cpSRP complex, composed of a FFC/cpSRP54 monomer and a CAO/cpSRP43 dimer. Interacts (via C-terminus) with CAO/cpSRP43 and with CPFTSY. Interacts with the third transmembrane domain of LHCP. Interacts with the PSBA/D1 nascent chain, but only when it is attached to the 70S ribosome and if it is shorter than 189 amino acid residues.
