A cDNA encoding the complete precursor of the phosphate translocator of the chloroplast inner envelope membrane has been isolated from a tobacco leaf (Nicotiana tabacum cv. Samsun) λgt 11 library. The tobacco cDNA is 1546 by in length and encodes a precursor protein of 401 amino acid residues with a deduced molecular weight of 43705. A putative processing site between Ala-73 and Ala-74 of the precursor protein is suggested by comparison with the N-terminal sequences of the pea and spinach… CONTINUE READING
