Plastid DNA insertions in plant nuclear genomes: the sites, abundance and ages, and a predicted promoter analysis

Abstract

The transfer of plastid DNA sequences into plant nuclear genomes plays an important role in the genomic evolution of plants. The abundance of nuclear-localized plastid DNA (nupDNA) correlates positively with nuclear genome size, but the genetic content of nupDNA remains unknown. In this mini review, we analyzed the number of nuclear-localized plastid gene… (More)
