RNA editing is an important process involved in the modification of nucleotides in the transcripts of a large number of functional genes. RNA editing results in the restoration of conserved amino acid residues for protein function in plants. In this review, I only describe and discuss the identified RNA editing and the RNA editing associated regulation in chloroplast, including cytidine-to-uridine editing, adenosine-to-inosine editing, and regulation of RNA editing in model plants, crop plants, woody plants, and medical plants. Information described in this review could be valuable in future investigation of molecular mechanisms that determine the specificity of the RNA editing process.
