The chloroplastic envelope is composed of two membranes, inner and outer, each with a distinct set of polypeptides. Like proteins in other chloroplastic compartments, most envelope proteins are synthesized in the cytosol and post-translationally imported into chloroplasts. Considerable knowledge has been obtained concerning protein import proteins. We isolated a cDNA clone from pea that encodes a 14-kilodalton outer envelope membrane protein. The precursor form of this protein does not possess… CONTINUE READING
