Green light for chloroplast outer-membrane proteins

Nature Cell Biology volume 10, pages 120122 (2008) | Download Citation

Subjects

Most chloroplast proteins are encoded in the cell nucleus, translated in the cytosol, and targeted to the organelle in a post-translational manner. Our understanding of how proteins are targeted to the outer envelope membrane of chloroplasts has been improved with the identification of a specific soluble sorting factor.
