Photosynthesis in chloroplasts is essential for life. It involves a number of nuclear- and plastome-encoded membrane proteins. Nuclear-encoded choloroplast proteins with an N-terminal stroma transit peptide are translocated from the cytoplasm into the stroma by the TOC/TIC (translocon of outer membrane complex/translocon of inner membrane complex) machinery, where the stromal transit peptide is removed by the stromal processing peptidase. Translocation of proteins from the stroma into or across the thylakoid membraneis fulfilled by the Sec, the twin-arginine (TAT), SRP or a ’Spontaneous’ machinery. In the review, we will present the recent progress of the protein import and sorting in chloroplasts.
