Functional analysis of a recently originating, atypical presequence: mitochondrial import and processing of GUS fusion proteins in transgenic tobacco and yeast


A gene family of at least five members encodes the tobacco mitochondrial Rieske Fe-S protein (RISP). To determine whether all five RISPs are translocated to mitochondria, fusion proteins containing the putative presequences of tobacco RISPs and Escherichia coli β-glucuronidase (GUS) were expressed in transgenic tobacco, and the resultant GUS proteins were… (More)
