The transfer of functional mitochondrial genes to the nucleus is an ongoing process during plant evolution that has made a major impact on cytonuclear interactions and mitochondrial genome evolution. Analysis of evolutionarily recent transfers in plants provides insights into the evolutionary dynamics of the process and how transferred genes become functional in the nucleus. Here, we report 42 new transferred genes in various angiosperms, including 9 separate transfers of the succinate… CONTINUE READING
