The complete nucleotide sequence of the tobacco chloroplast genome: its gene organization and expression
TLDR
Five sequences coding for proteins homologous to components of the respiratory‐chain NADH dehydrogenase from human mitochondria have been found and sequence and expression analyses indicate both prokaryotic and eukaryotic features of the chloroplast genes. Expand
A KaiC-associating SasA–RpaA two-component regulatory system as a major circadian timing mediator in cyanobacteria
TLDR
It is reported that RpaA, a potential DNA-binding protein that acts as a cognate response regulator of the KaiC-interacting kinase SasA, mediates between KaiC phosphorylation and global transcription rhythms, suggesting that multiple pathways ensure a genome-wide circadian system. Expand
The Selaginella Genome Identifies Genetic Changes Associated with the Evolution of Vascular Plants
TLDR
The genome sequence of the lycophyte Selaginella moellendorffii (Selaginella), the first nonseed vascular plant genome reported, is reported, finding that the transition from a gametophytes- to a sporophyte-dominated life cycle required far fewer new genes than the Transition from a non Seed vascular to a flowering plant. Expand
On the expansion of the pentatricopeptide repeat gene family in plants.
TLDR
A genome-wide identification and comparison of the PPR genes of 3 organisms provides compelling evidence that one or more waves of retrotransposition were responsible for the expansion of thePPR gene family in flowering plants. Expand
Complete nucleotide sequence of the chloroplast genome from the green alga Chlorella vulgaris: the existence of genes possibly involved in chloroplast division.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the chloroplast genome from the unicellular green alga Chlorella vulgaris C-27 has been determined and the existence of two adjacent genes homologous to bacterial genes involved in cell division, minD and minE, suggests that C. vulgaris is closer to land plants than to red and brown algae.

Pentatricopeptide Repeat Proteins with the DYW Motif Have Distinct Molecular Functions in RNA Editing and RNA Cleavage in Arabidopsis Chloroplasts[W]
TLDR
It is proposed that different DYW family members have acquired distinct functions in the divergent processes of RNA maturation, including RNA cleavage and RNA editing. Expand
Regulation of gene expression in chloroplasts of higher plants
TLDR
The current knowledge of the regulation of gene expression in chloroplasts of higher plants is overviewed and further studies on this matter are considered. Expand
Complete chloroplast DNA sequence of the moss Physcomitrella patens: evidence for the loss and relocation of rpoA from the chloroplast to the nucleus.
TLDR
The complete chloroplast DNA sequence (122 890 bp) of the moss Physcomitrella patens has been determined and the nuclear rpoA gene encoding the alpha subunit of RNA polymerase (RNAP) from P.patens is isolated and characterized, which indicates that chloroplasts RNAP is encoded separately by chlorOPlast and nuclear genomes in the moss. Expand
Evolution and mechanism of translation in chloroplasts.
TLDR
Analyses conducted in vivo and in vitro have revealed the existence of multiple mechanisms for translational initiation in chloroplasts, including Shine-Dalgarno-like sequences at the correct positions. Expand
Cyanobacterial daily life with Kai-based circadian and diurnal genome-wide transcriptional control in Synechococcus elongatus
TLDR
The analysis revealed that dawn-expressed genes were up-regulated by kaiC-overexpression so that the clock was arrested at subjective dawn, indicating that the Synechococcus genome seems to be primarily regulated by light/dark cycles and is dramatically modified by the protein-based circadian oscillator.
