Term Information

Accession
GO:0140318
Name
protein transporter activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
protein carrier activity, protein transport chaperone
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
Directly binding to a specific protein and delivering it to a specific cellular location. Source: PMID:18706423
Comment
Examples of protein carriers include the soluble TIM chaperone complexes of S. cerevisiae Tim9-Tim10 and Tim8-Tim13, that provide a shuttle system between TOM and the membrane insertases TIM22 and SAM and, thus, ensure that precursors are kept in a translocation-competent conformation.
