Three decades in transport business: studies of metabolite transport in chloroplasts - a personal perspective

Photosynth Res. 2002;73(1-3):265-72. doi: 10.1023/A:1020475803784.


This article gives an historical overview of our group's research on various metabolite translocators of chloroplasts, such as the translocators for phosphorylated intermediates of the Calvin-Benson cycle and of glycolysis, of ADP and ATP, of dicarboxylates, of pyruvate and of hexoses; how it began and where it led to. Wherever appropriate, references will be made to research in other laboratories.
