Chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes encode a number of genes required for each organelle’s distinct function. C-to-U RNA editing alters the sequence of many organellar transcripts in all but one group of embryophytes, land plants. Another form of RNA editing, conversion of U to C, modifies nucleotides in transcripts from the organelles of plants, but is absent in spermatophytes. No specific motif is frequently observed around all editing sites, raising questions about how the editing… CONTINUE READING
