A gene encoding a putative guanosine 3',5'-bispyrophosphate (ppGpp) synthase-degradase, designated Cr-RSH, was identified in the unicellular photosynthetic eukaryote Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. The encoded Cr-RSH protein possesses a putative chloroplast-targeting signal at its NH2-terminus, and translocation of Cr-RSH into chloroplasts isolated from C.reinhardtii was demonstrated in vitro. The predicted mature region of Cr-RSH exhibits marked similarity to eubacterial members of the RelA-SpoT… CONTINUE READING
