Stability of the chloroplast psbD mRNA encoding the D2 protein of the photosystem II reaction center is drastically decreased in the nuclear photosynthetic mutant nac2-26 of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Using biolistic transformation and genetic crosses we have introduced chimeric genes consisting of the psbD leader fused to a reporter gene into the chloroplast in both wild-type and mutant nuclear backgrounds. The chimeric message is destabilized in the latter, but not in the former case… CONTINUE READING
