External Light Conditions and Internal Cell Cycle Phases Coordinate Accumulation of Chloroplast and Mitochondrial Transcripts in the Red Alga Cyanidioschyzon merolae

Abstract

The mitochondria and chloroplasts in plant cells are originated from bacterial endosymbioses, and they still replicate their own genome and divide in a similar manner as their ancestors did. It is thus likely that the organelle transcription is coordinated with its proliferation cycle. However, this possibility has not extensively been explored to date… (More)
