Most mitochondrial proteins are synthesized in the cytosol as precursor and imported into the mitochondria by Tom complexes (translocase of outer membrane complexes). Knowledge of the binding mechanism between precursor and Tom20 in plants is very limited. Here, computational methods are employed to improve our understanding of the interactions between both(More)
UNLABELLED Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) is a widely observed phenomenon, which is especially useful in hybrid seed production. Meixiang A (MxA) is a new rice CMS line derived from a pollen-free sterile line named Yunnan ZidaoA (ZD-CMS). In this study, a homologous WA352 gene with variation in two nucleotides was identified in MxA. Cytological analysis(More)
Thylakoid membrane complexes of rice (Oryza sativa L.) play crucial roles in growth and crop production. Understanding of protein interactions within the complex would provide new insights into photosynthesis. Here, a new "Double-Strips BN/SDS-PAGE" method was employed to separate thylakoid membrane complexes in order to increase the protein abundance on(More)
