Chloroplast import and processing of two precursor proteins with mutations in the carboxyl-terminal region of the transit peptide were examined in vitro. Deletion mutations were introduced into the 57-amino acid transit peptide of a chloroplast protein, the small subunit of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase, from pea. A mutant, PSd48/57, in which nine carboxyl-terminal amino acids of the transit peptide had been deleted, was imported and processed to a series of 13- to 18-kDa… CONTINUE READING
