Chloroplasts are plastids containing the pigment chlorophyll, capable of photosynthesising by which they produce nutrients. Their structure is complex; in addition to the chloroplast envelope which is formed by a double membrane, chloroplasts have an internal, thylakoid membrane. Spaces that are formed by these membranes are places of synthesis of various molecules, some of which have to be transferred into a diffenrent space. Problem of transport of molecules in the cytosol of plant cells is solved by vesicular transport, which is perpetrated by budding of vesicles filled with cargo molecules from a donor membrane and fused with acceptor membrane resulting in releasing the cargo molecules inside. Research has shown presence of vesicular transport in chloroplasts. Aim of this review is to cover so far acquired knowledges of putative chloroplast transport system homologous to the vesicle transport in cytosol. Even though some of the componentes of putative chloroplast vesicle transport are identified, their roles are not precisely determined neither as the complete mechanism.
