Chloroplasts are organelles of endosymbiotic origin, and they transferred most of their genetic information to the host nucleus during this process. They therefore have to import more than 95% of their protein complement post-translationally from the cytosol. In vivo results from the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana — together with biochemical, biophysical and structural data from other plants — now allow us to outline the mechanistic details of the molecular machines that facilitate this… Expand
