Abstract. The editing status rps14 and rpl20 mRNAs decreased rapidly from nearly 100% edited to about 30% edited when maize plants were shifted from 20 °C to 37 °C. A decrease in the extent of editing was easily detected within 2 h and decreased to a steady-state level of about 40% C-to-U conversion at 37 °C. In contrast, the editing status of these chloroplast mRNAs increased relatively slowly after plants were shifted from 37 °C to 20 °C. Chloroplasts isolated from maize plants which were… CONTINUE READING
