Molecular and genetic analyses of Tic20 homologues in Arabidopsis thaliana chloroplasts.
The Tic20 protein was identified in pea (Pisum sativum) as a component of the chloroplast protein import apparatus. In Arabidopsis, there are four Tic20 homologues, termed atTic20-I, atTic20-IV,Expand

Analysis of Transposon Insertion Mutants Highlights the Diversity of Mechanisms Underlying Male Progamic Development in Arabidopsis
To identify genes with essential roles in male gametophytic development, including postpollination (progamic) events, we have undertaken a genetic screen based on segregation ratio distortion of aExpand

Epidemiology of β‐thalassaemia in Western India: mapping the frequencies and mutations in sub‐regions of Maharashtra and Gujarat
Although the average frequency of β‐thalassaemia carriers in India is 3–4% and the prevalent mutations have been studied, no micromapping has been done. This is the first attempt to provide anExpand

Nucleotide binding and dimerization at the chloroplast pre-protein import receptor, atToc33, are not essential in vivo but do increase import efficiency.
The atToc33 protein is one of several pre-protein import receptors in the outer envelope of Arabidopsis chloroplasts. It is a GTPase with motifs characteristic of such proteins, and its loss in theExpand
