Abstract
mRNA localization efficiently targets gene products to specific subcellular compartments, thereby controlling cell fate and polar cell growth. Plants also localize RNAs to target proteins in the endomembrane system, and to different tissues by long-distance transport. Recent developments support the existence of multiple pathways that transport RNA to the cortical region of the cell and to different tissues of the plant.
