Identification and characterization of cDNAs encoding pentatricopeptide repeat proteins in the basal land plant, the moss Physcomitrella patens.

Abstract

A large gene family encoding proteins with a pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) motif exists in flowering plants but not in algae, fungi, or animals. This suggests that PPR protein genes expanded vastly during the evolution of the land plants. To investigate this possibility, we analysed PPR protein genes in the basal land plant, the moss Physcomitrella patens… (More)
