We isolated a cDNA encoding a 568-amino acid, heat-stress-induced peptidyl prolyl isomerase belonging to the FK506-binding-protein (FKBP) family. The open reading frame encodes for a peptidyl prolyl isomerase that possesses three FKBP-12-like domains, a putative tetratricopeptide motif, and a calmodulin-binding domain. Specific antibodies showed that the(More)
A novel cDNA encoding for a peptidyl-prolyl-cis-trans-isomerase (PPIase) belonging to the FK506-binding protein (FKBP) family was isolated from wheat. It contains an open reading frame of 559 amino acids and it represents the first plant FKBP-PPIase to be cloned. It possesses a unique sequence which is composed of three FKPB-like domains, in addition to a(More)
 RNA editing occurs in transcripts encoded by the mitochondrial genome in all major groups of land plants and is characterised by C-to-U editing. When editing occurs, the amino acid is usually altered because the nucleotide modification is generally in the first or second position and the amino acid change improves the conservation of the predicted protein(More)
