Rubisco activase (RCA) is a molecular chaperone present in maize as 43 kDa and 41 kDa polypeptides. They are encoded by two different genes comprising an identical ORF that corresponds to the 43 kDa RCA polypeptide, and their transcripts do not show putative splicing sites. To determine the origin of the 41 kDa polypeptide, leaf poly A(+) mRNA was in vitro(More)
The discovery of plant DNA recombination techniques triggered the development of a wide range of genetically modified crops. The transgenics were the first generation of modified plants; however, these crops were quickly questioned due to the artificial combination of DNA between different species. As a result, the second generation of modified plants known(More)
