The Plant Proteomics Database (PPDB; http://ppdb.tc.cornell.edu), launched in 2004, provides an integrated resource for experimentally identified proteins in Arabidopsis and maize (Zea mays). Internal BLAST alignments link maize and Arabidopsis information. Experimental identification is based on in-house mass spectrometry (MS) of cell type-specific(More)
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii mutants defective in the chloroplast ATP synthase are highly sensitive to light. The ac46 mutant is affected in the MDH1 gene, required for production or stability of the monocistronic atpH mRNA encoding CF(O)-III. In this and other ATP synthase mutants, we show that short-term exposure to moderate light intensities-a few(More)
In Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, the clpP1 chloroplast gene encoding one of the catalytic subunits of the ClpP protease complex contains a large in-frame insertion sequence (IS1). Based on the Escherichia coli ClpP structure, IS1 is predicted to protrude at the apical surface of the complex, likely influencing the interaction of the catalytic core with(More)
The composition of the chloroplast-localized protease complex, ClpP, from the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii was characterized by nondenaturing electrophoresis, immunoblotting and MS. The detected ClpP complex has a native mass of approximately 540 kDa, which is approximately 200 kDa higher than ClpP complexes in higher plant chloroplasts,(More)
The ClpP peptidase is a major constituent of the proteolytic machinery of bacteria and organelles. The chloroplast ClpP complex is unusual, in that it associates a large number of subunits, one of which (ClpP1) is encoded in the chloroplast, the others in the nucleus. The complexity of these large hetero-oligomeric complexes has been a major difficulty in(More)
