Nonphotosynthetic plastids are important sites for the biosynthesis of starch, fatty acids, and the assimilation of nitrogen into amino acids in a wide range of plant tissues. Unlike chloroplasts, all the metabolites for these processes have to be imported, or generated by oxidative metabolism within the organelle. The aim of this review is to summarize our present understanding of the anabolic pathways involved, the requirement for import of precursors from the cytosol, the provision of energy… CONTINUE READING
