The transcription of rice plastid psbD-psbC genes encoding photosystem II reaction center protein D2 and chlorophyll alpha-binding protein CP43 is closely regulated by light. To elucidate the sequence requirement for the light-responsive promoter of psbD-psbC operon, transcriptional analysis of the rice promoter was performed with deleted mutants and site-directed mutants in vitro. Deletion of -546 approximately -100 upstream sequences resulted in 4- to 5-fold decrease in the transcription rate… CONTINUE READING
