In tobacco, 30 of 34 sites in chloroplast transcripts that undergo C-to-U RNA editing can be grouped into clusters of 2-5 sites based on sequence similarities immediately 5' to the edited C. According to a previous transgenic analysis, overexpression of transcripts representing one cluster member results in reduction in editing of all cluster members, suggesting that members of an individual cluster share a trans-factor that is present in limiting amounts. To compare leaves and roots, we… CONTINUE READING
