The gateway to chloroplast: re-defining the function of chloroplast receptor proteins.


Chloroplast biogenesis often requires a tight orchestration between gene expression (both plastidial and nuclear) and translocation of ~3000 nuclear-encoded proteins into the organelle. Protein translocation is achieved via two multimeric import machineries at the outer (TOC) and inner (TIC) envelope of chloroplast, respectively. Three components constitute… (More)
