Chloroplasts are a major destination of protein traffic within leaf cells. Protein import into chloroplasts is mediated by a set of translocon complexes at the chloroplast envelope. Current data indicate that the expression of translocon genes is regulated in a tissue-specific manner, possibly to accommodate the higher import demand of chloroplasts in(More)
Accurate import of thousands of nuclear-encoded proteins is an important step in plastid biogenesis. However, the import machinery of cytosolic precursor proteins to plastids relies on the Toc and Tic (translocons on the outer envelope and inner envelope membrane of chloroplasts) complexes. Toc159 protein was identified in pea (Pisum sativum) as a major(More)
