In plants, RNA editing is observed in mitochondria and plastids, changing selected C nucleotides into Us in both organelles. We here identify the PPR (pentatricopeptide repeat) protein MEF3 (mitochondrial editing factor 3) of the E domain PPR subclass by genetic mapping of a variation between ecotypes Columbia (Col) and Landsberg erecta (Ler) in Arabidopsis(More)
A forwards genetic screen of a chemically mutated plant population identified mitochondrial RNA editing factor 10 (MEF10) in Arabidopsis thaliana. MEF10 is a trans-factor required specifically for the C to U editing of site nad2-842. The MEF10 protein is characterized by a stretch of pentatricopeptide repeats (PPR) and a C-terminal extension domain ending(More)
The combination of smart cards and biometrics results in a strong 2-factor authentication. It facilitates a trusted credential for authenticating an individual's identity through one-to-one biometric verification using the smart card token. Fingerprint Authentication Systems (FASs) embedded in smart cards are gaining massive acceptance as it offers a(More)
