The chloroplast ycf3 and ycf4 open reading frames of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii are required for the accumulation of the photosystem I complex
The chloroplast genes ycf3 and ycf4 from the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii have been characterized. The deduced amino acid sequences of Ycf4 (197 residues) and Ycf3 (172 residues) displayExpand

Identification of cis-Acting RNA Leader Elements Required for Chloroplast psbD Gene Expression in Chlamydomonas
The psbD mRNA of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is one of the most abundant chloroplast transcripts and encodes the photosystem II reaction center polypeptide D2. This RNA exists in two forms with 5′Expand

The Nac2 gene of Chlamydomonas encodes a chloroplast TPR‐like protein involved in psbD mRNA stability
The psbD mRNA, which encodes the D2 reaction center polypeptide of photosystem II, is one of the most abundant chloroplast mRNAs. We have used genomic complementation to isolate the nuclear Nac2Expand

Functional studies of Ycf3: its role in assembly of photosystem I and interactions with some of its subunits.
The Ycf3 protein is essential for the accumulation of the photosystem I (PSI) complex and acts at a post-translational level. The sequence of Ycf3 is conserved in cyanobacteria, algae, and plants andExpand

Genetic and ultrastructural studies in dilated cardiomyopathy patients: a large deletion in the lamin A/C gene is associated with cardiomyocyte nuclear envelope disruption
Major nuclear envelope abnormalities, such as disruption and/or presence of intranuclear organelles, have rarely been described in cardiomyocytes from dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) patients. In thisExpand

Specific contribution of lamin A and lamin C in the development of laminopathies.
Mutations in the lamin A/C gene are involved in multiple human disorders for which the pathophysiological mechanisms are partially understood. Conflicting results prevail regarding the organizationExpand

A large fraction of PsaF is nonfunctional in photosystem I complexes lacking the PsaJ subunit.
PsaJ is a small hydrophobic subunit of the photosystem I complex (PSI) whose function is not yet fully understood. Here we describe mutants of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, in which theExpand

Actinomycin D induced DNase I cleavage enhancement caused by sequence specific propagation of an altered DNA structure.
Two DNA hexadecamers containing one central 5'-GC-3' base step have been examined by footprinting methodology in the presence and absence of actinomycin D. The results of these studies, coupled withExpand
