An Intracellular Signal Transduction Pathway between the Chloroplast and Nucleus Is Involved in De-Etiolation
TLDR
It is proposed that the GUN1 gene plays an important role in the transition from heterotrophic to photoautotrophic growth, suggesting an important physiological role for the plastid-nucleus signaling pathway during chloroplast biogenesis.
Coordination of plastid and nuclear gene expression.
TLDR
Characterization of arabidopsis gun (genomes uncoupled) mutants, which express nuclear genes in the presence of norflurazon or lincomycin, has provided evidence for two separate signalling pathways, one involving tetrapyrrole biosynthesis intermediates and the other requiring plastid protein synthesis.
Chloroplast to nucleus communication triggered by accumulation of Mg-protoporphyrinIX
TLDR
It is shown that the tetrapyrrole intermediate Mg-protoporphyrin (Mg-ProtoIX) acts as a signalling molecule in one of the signalling pathways between the chloroplast and nucleus.
Regulation of Expression of Nuclear Genes Encoding Polypeptides Required for the Light Reactions of Photosynthesis
TLDR
CDNAs encoding 31 different components of Photosystem II, Photosystem I, the cytochrome bf complex and the electron transfer chain, and ATP synthase have been isolated and their characterization has provided important structural information about the proteins.
Intracellular Signaling and Chlorophyll Synthesis
TLDR
Future work in this area should provide detailed molecular information on the influence of chlorophyll synthesis and other plastid-localized metabolism on nuclear gene expression and how plants utilize this form of interorganellar communication during their lifecycles.
Uncoupled Expression of Nuclear and Plastid Photosynthesis-Associated Genes Contributes to Cell Death in a Lesion Mimic Mutant
TLDR
A pathway from the SA- to the 1O2-signaling pathway is provided, which are intertwined via the uncoupled expression of PhANGs and PhAPGs, contributing to the lesion-mimicking cell death in lsd1.
Conditional repression of essential chloroplast genes: Evidence for new plastid signaling pathways.
Covariations in the nuclear chloroplast transcriptome reveal a regulatory master‐switch
TLDR
It is shown by the differential‐expression analysis of 3,292 genes, that most of the 35 environmental and genetic conditions tested, including plastid signalling mutations, elicit only three main classes of response from the nuclear chloroplast transcriptome.

TLDR
It is suggested that the DET1 gene product is a negatively acting regulatory molecule that is used in common by the light stimulus transduction pathway and by temporal or spatial regulatory signals in plants.
Use of nuclear mutants in the analysis of chloroplast development.
TLDR
The range of pleiotropic effects of hcf mutations indicates that the mutations identify nuclear genes whose products are involved in a number of different steps in chloroplast development.
Photosynthesis-Associated Gene Families: Differences in Response to Tissue-Specific and Environmental Factors
TLDR
The results show that plastid development plays a crucial role in the activation of expression of these chimeric genes in transgenic tobacco plants, and particular members of each of the above gene families respond differently to tissue-specific and environmental factors.
Phenotypic and Genetic Analysis of det2, a New Mutant That Affects Light-Regulated Seedling Development in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
The greening phenotypes produced by recessive mutations in a gene designated de-etiolated-2 (DET2) are described, implying that DET1 and DET2 function in distinct pathways that affect downstream light-regulated genes.
Chloroplast Structure and Function Is Altered in the NCS2 Maize Mitochondrial Mutant.
The nonchromosomal stripe 2 (NCS2) mutant of maize (Zea mays L.) has a DNA rearrangement in the mitochondrial genome that segregates with the abnormal growth phenotype. Yet, the NCS2 characteristic
The implication of a plastid-derived factor in the transcriptional control of nuclear genes encoding the light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b protein.
TLDR
The results suggest that, in addition to phytochrome (Pfr), plastid-dependent factors are required for a continuous light-dependent transcription of nuclear genes encoding the LHCP.

TLDR
Nitrogen-limited Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is chlorotic and very deficient in chlorophyll a/b light-harvesting complexes, and regulation of nuclear-encoded photosynthetic proteins by nitrogen is achieved through mechanisms affecting transcription and/or mRNA stability.

Nitrogen-limited Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is chlorotic and very deficient in chlorophyll a/b light-harvesting complexes, and regulation of nuclear-encoded photosynthetic proteins by nitrogen is achieved through mechanisms affecting transcription and/or mRNA stability.
