The review summarizes the current understanding of light-inducible proteins of plants, wide-spread among prokaryotic and eukaryotic photosynthetic organisms. The greatest attention is paid to the Early light-inducible proteins of plastids (Elip) and their photoprotective role under light stress. Data are presented on structure and functions of Elip-related(More)
This review summarizes the current knowledge of the biosynthesis of tetrapyrroles in plants, key stages of this process regulation, as well as the available data on the participation of these compounds in the induction and transmission of retrograde signals. Possible sources of retrograde signals are considered. Particular attention is paid to the analysis(More)
Current ideas of plant mitochondrial genome organization are presented. Data on the size and structural organization of mtDNA, gene content, and peculiarities are summarized. Special emphasis is given to characteristic features of the mitochondrial genomes of land plants and photosynthetic algae that distinguish them from the mitochondrial genomes of other(More)
