Additional Information
Additional Information
This transit peptide sequence is derived from plant sequences obtained from corn and sunflower ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase oxygenase (RuBisCo), an enzyme present in all photosynthetic plants.

The optimised transit peptide (OTP) sequence directs translocation of the protein to chloroplasts, where the protein is functionally active.
