The argininosuccinate lyase gene of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: an important tool for nuclear transformation and for correlating the genetic and molecular maps of the ARG7 locus.
The argininosuccinate lyase (ASL) gene of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has been cloned using four oligonucleotide probes corresponding to highly conserved regions of the ASL polypeptide sequence. TheExpand

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

Directed chloroplast transformation in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: insertional inactivation of the psaC gene encoding the iron sulfur protein destabilizes photosystem I.
The chloroplast gene psaC encoding the iron sulfur protein of photosystem I (PSI) from the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has been cloned and characterized. The deduced amino acid sequence isExpand

Characterization of Mbb1, a nucleus-encoded tetratricopeptide-like repeat protein required for expression of the chloroplast psbB/psbT/psbH gene cluster in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
Genetic analysis has revealed that the accumulation of several chloroplast mRNAs of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii requires specific nucleus-encoded functions. To gain insight into thisExpand

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

Stability determinants in the chloroplast psbB/T/H mRNAs of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
The chloroplast gene psbB encodes the chlorophyll-a binding protein P5 (CP47), one of the core subunits of photosystem II (PSII). The psbB mRNA and the downstream psbT and psbH transcripts fail toExpand

Sequence of the chloroplast DNA region of Chlamydomonas reinhardii containing the gene of the large subunit of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase and parts of its flanking genes.
Abstract The transcriptional organization and the sequence of a 4000 base region of the chloroplast genome of Chlamydomonas reinhardii have been determined. The region includes the gene for the largeExpand

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
