Encodes a permease-like component of an ABC transporter involved in lipid transfer from ER to chloroplast. A phosphatidic acid-binding protein with a predicted mycobacterial cell entry domain. It is tethered to the inner chloroplast envelope membrane facing the outer envelope membrane. Presumed bacterial orthologs of TGD1 and TGD2 in Gram-negative bacteria are typically organized in transcriptional units, suggesting their involvement in a common biological process.
