Rhomboid proteins were the most recently identified of the four families of intramembrane proteases. Found in almost all organisms, these serine proteases operate in a diverse range of pathways. They regulate Drosophila growth factor signalling (Urban et al., 2002), permit infection by apicomplexans (Dowse et al., 2005), play a key role in mitochondrial dynamics (Herlan et al., 2004), and allow bacterial quorum sensing via channel activation (Stevenson et al., 2007).

In plants, as in other eukaryotes, rhomboids are encoded by a multigene family. These are little researched to date but we documented previously that A. thaliana rhomboid RBL10 was situated in the plastid envelope and has roles in fertility and photosynthesis (Thompson et al., 2012).
