Transgene dosage, silencing competence of the transgene loci, and photoperiod conditions were found to regulate the onset and efficiency of Rps10 silencing in two independent transgenic lines of Arabidopsis thaliana. The Rps10 gene encodes the S10 protein which is part of the small subunit of mitochondrial ribosomes. Homozygous plants presented(More)
The characteristic features of higher plant mitochondrial genomes: size, structure, recombination activity and evolutionary dynamics, are reviewed with the emphasis on the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of Phaseolus vulgaris. Among all examined eukaryotic organisms, higher plants were found to contain the largest and most complex mitochondrial genomes. The plant(More)
