Mutational and expression analysis of ELIP1 and ELIP2 in Arabidopsis thaliana

Plants exposed to photoinhibitory conditions respond by accumulation of the early light-induced proteins (ELIPs) with a potential photoprotective function. In Arabidopsis thaliana two genes (Elip1 and Elip2) encode for two ELIP proteins: evidence exists that the two genes are differentially regulated but their precise function is unclear. Mutants null for… CONTINUE READING
