Mating type linked mutations which disrupt the uniparental transmission of chloroplast genes in chlamydomonas.

Abstract

In Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, chloroplast genomes are normally transmitted by the mating type plus (mt+) parent and mitochondrial genomes by the mating type minus (mt-) parent. In this paper we describe three new nuclear mutations, designated mat-3-1 to -3, which are tightly linked to the mt+ allele and permit high transmission of chloroplast genomes from… (More)
