Within the chloroplasts of higher plants and algae, photosynthesis converts light into biological energy, fueling the assimilation of atmospheric carbon dioxide into biologically useful molecules. Two major steps, photosynthetic electron transport and the Calvin-Benson cycle, require many gene products encoded from chloroplast as well as nuclear genomes. The expression of genes in both cellular compartments is highly dynamic and influenced by a diverse range of factors. Light is the primary… Expand
Abiotic Stresses: Insight into Gene Regulation and Protein Expression in Photosynthetic Pathways of Plants
TLDR
This review gives a comprehensive view of photosynthesis-related alterations at the gene and protein levels for plant adaptation or reaction in response to abiotic stress. Expand
The Diurnal Logic of the Expression of the Chloroplast Genome in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
TLDR
A qRT-PCR platform was developed and used to quantify chloroplast, 21 mitochondrial as well as 71 nuclear transcripts in cells grown in highly controlled 12 h light/12 h dark cycles and results suggest a striking internal logic in the expression of the chloroplasts genome and a previously unappreciated complexity in the regulation of chloropleft genes. Expand
How sugars might coordinate chloroplast and nuclear gene expression during acclimation to high light intensities.
TLDR
Sugar- or hormonal signaling pathways might synchronize the responsiveness of both genomes and thereby help to coordinate the expression of plastome- and nuclear-encoded photosynthesis genes in concert with other, more specific retrograde signals. Expand
Chloroplasts— Beyond Energy Capture and Carbon Fixation: Tuning of Photosynthesis in Response to Chilling Stress
TLDR
This review focused on the potential functions of chloroplasts in fine tuning photosynthesis processes under low-temperature stress by perceiving stress signals, modulating the expression of photosynthesis-related genes, and scavenging excess reactive oxygen species (ROS) in chloroplast to survive the adverse environment. Expand
Regulation of Rubisco gene expression in C4 plants.
TLDR
Despite its central role in photosynthesis, research into regulation of the chloroplast rbcL and nuclear RbcS genes that encode this enzyme has lagged behind other plant gene systems. Expand
Effect of Photosynthetic Electron Transport Inhibition in vivo on the Chloroplast Genes Transcription in Arabidopsis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that plastoquinone redox state has impact on transcription rate of wide range of Arabidopsis chloroplast genes, and probable participation of mitochondria in the redox regulation of plastid genes expression inArabidopsis is suggested. Expand
Coordinating light responses between the nucleus and the chloroplast, a role for plant cryptochromes and phytochromes.
TLDR
Results indicate that both crys and phys modulate "plastome-regulatory genes" with enrichment in the contribution of crys to all processes and of phys to post-transcription and transcription. Expand
Limited Responsiveness of Chloroplast Gene Expression during Acclimation to High Light in Tobacco1[CC-BY]
TLDR
Comparative ribosome profiling and transcriptomic experiments suggest that low light-acclimated plants upregulate the translation of a single chloroplast gene, psbA, during acclimation to high light, and results indicate that PsbA translation activation occurs already at moderate light intensities. Expand
A novel RNA binding protein affects rbcL gene expression and is specific to bundle sheath chloroplasts in C4 plants
TLDR
Findings suggest that specific accumulation and binding of the RLSB binding protein to rbcL mRNA within BS chloroplasts may be one determinant leading to the characteristic cell type-specific localization of Rubisco in C4 plants. Expand
Optimization of photosynthesis by multiple metabolic pathways involving interorganelle interactions: resource sharing and ROS maintenance as the bases
TLDR
The present review emphasizes the beneficial interactions among photosynthesis, dark respiration and photorespiration, in relation to metabolism of C, N and S, and the patterns of minimization of ROS production and scavenging of excess ROS in intracellular compartments are highlighted. Expand
