The Magnoliaceae are discussed as one of the key species at the root of the flowering plants. To obtain molecular information for one of these phylogenetically interesting plant species, we determined genomic and cDNA sequences of the mitochondrial cox3 gene in Magnolia grandiflora. Twenty-two RNA editing events are identified to alter cytidines in the mRNA to uridines, all but one of which change the encoded amino acid identity. RNA editing in the cox3 coding region is thus more frequent in… CONTINUE READING
