Respiration, the core of mitochondrial metabolism, depends on the function of five respiratory complexes. Many respiratory chain-related proteins are encoded by the mitochondrial genome and their RNAs undergo post-transcriptional modifications by nuclear genome-expressed factors, including pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) proteins.

55 Respiration, the core of mitochondrial metabolism, depends on the function of 56 five respiratory complexes. Many respiratory chain related proteins are 57 encoded by the mitochondrial genome and their RNAs undergo 58 post-transcriptional modifications by nuclear genome expressed factors, 59 including pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) proteins.

In higher plants, the splicing of organelle-encoded mRNA involves a complex collaboration with nuclear-encoded proteins. Pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) proteins have been implicated in these RNA-protein interactions. In this study, we performed the cloning and functional characterization of maize Defective kernel 35 (Dek35). The dek35-ref mutant is a(More)
