Distinct Functions for the Two PsbP-Like Proteins PPL1 and PPL2 in the Chloroplast Thylakoid Lumen of Arabidopsis1[W][OA]
PsbP, an extrinsic subunit of photosystem II (PSII), is a nuclear-encoded protein that optimizes the water-splitting reaction in vivo. In addition to PsbP, higher plants have two nuclear-encodedExpand

PsbP Protein, But Not PsbQ Protein, Is Essential for the Regulation and Stabilization of Photosystem II in Higher Plants1
PsbP and PsbQ proteins are extrinsic subunits of photosystem II (PSII) and participate in the normal function of photosynthetic water oxidation. Both proteins exist in a broad range of the oxygenicExpand

Nitrogen Recycling and Remobilization Are Differentially Controlled by Leaf Senescence and Development Stage in Arabidopsis under Low Nitrogen Nutrition1
Five recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), previously selected from the Bay-0 × Shahdara RIL population on the basis of differential leaf senescence phenotypes (fromExpand

The DNA-binding protease, CND41, and the degradation of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase in senescent leaves of tobacco
Plastids bear their own genome, organized into DNA–protein complexes (nucleoids). Recently, we identified a DNA-binding protease (CND41) in the chloroplast nucleoids of cultured tobacco (NicotianaExpand

Functional dissection of two Arabidopsis PsbO proteins
PsbO protein is an extrinsic subunit of photosystem II (PSII) and has been proposed to play a central role in stabilization of the catalytic manganese cluster. Arabidopsis thaliana has two psbO genesExpand

A Regulatory Cascade Involving Class II ETHYLENE RESPONSE FACTOR Transcriptional Repressors Operates in the Progression of Leaf Senescence1[C][W][OA]
The proteasome-mediated regulation of class II ERF transcriptional repressors is involved in the progression of leaf senescence. Leaf senescence is the final process of leaf development that involvesExpand
