Chloroplast membrane transport: interplay of prokaryotic and eukaryotic traits.

  title={Chloroplast membrane transport: interplay of prokaryotic and eukaryotic traits.},
  author={Ute C Vothknecht and J{\"u}rgen Soll},
Chloroplasts are specific plant organelles of prokaryotic origin. They are separated from the surrounding cell by a double membrane, which represents an effective barrier for the transport of metabolites and proteins. Specific transporters in the inner envelope membrane have been described, which facilitate the exchange of metabolites. In contrast, the outer envelope has been viewed for a long time as a molecular sieve that offers a mere size constriction to the passage of molecules. This view… CONTINUE READING
