Albino3 An Arabidopsis nuclear gene essential for chloro-plast differentiation, encodes a chloroplast protein that is the translocase responsible for the Sec-independent insertion of light-harvesting chlorophyll-binding protein into the chloroplast membrane. Has similarities to Oxa1 and YidC, proteins present in bacterial membranes and yeast mitochondria.

alboaggregin Alboaggregin A is a C-type lectin (50 kDa) from the white-lipped tree viper (Trimeresurus albolabris); causes platelet aggregation through acting as a platelet GPIb agonist. Alboaggregin B also has platelet-aggregating activity but is calcium independent. Similar in action to botrocetin.
