protein import into chloroplast thylakoid membrane

id: GO:0045038
name: protein import into chloroplast thylakoid membrane
namespace: biological_process
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: The import of proteins into the chloroplast thylakoid membranes. Proteins that are destined for the thylakoid lumen require two uptake-targeting sequences: the first targets the protein to the stroma, and the second targets the protein from the stroma to the thylakoid lumen. Four separate thylakoid-import systems deal with the proteins once they are in the stroma.
