The N-terminal transit peptides of nuclear-encoded plastid proteins are necessary and sufficient for their import into plastids, but the information encoded by these transit peptides remains elusive, as they have a high sequence diversity and lack consensus sequences or common sequence motifs. Here, we investigated the sequence information contained in transit peptides. Hierarchical clustering on transit peptides of 208 plastid proteins showed that the transit peptide sequences are grouped to… CONTINUE READING
