Information for targeting to the chloroplastic inner envelope membrane is contained in the mature region of the maize Bt1-encoded protein.


Based on the protein sequence deduced from a cDNA clone, it has been proposed that the maize bt1 locus encodes an amyloplast membrane metabolite translocator protein (Sullivan, T. D., Strelow, L. I., Illingworth, C. A., Phillips, R. L., and Nelson, O. E., Jr. (1991) Plant Cell 3, 1337-1348). The present work provides further evidence for this hypothesis by… (More)
