Import of most nuclear encoded proteins into plastids is directed by an N-terminal transit peptide. Early studies suggested that transit peptides are interchangeable between precursor proteins. However, emerging evidence shows that different transit peptides contain different motifs specifying their preference for certain plastid types or ages. In this opinion article, we propose a 'multi-selection and multi-order' (M&M) model for transit peptide design, describing each transit peptide as an… CONTINUE READING
