Intra-plastid protein trafficking: how plant cells adapted prokaryotic mechanisms to the eukaryotic condition.


Protein trafficking and localization in plastids involve a complex interplay between ancient (prokaryotic) and novel (eukaryotic) translocases and targeting machineries. During evolution, ancient systems acquired new functions and novel translocation machineries were developed to facilitate the correct localization of nuclear encoded proteins targeted to… (More)
