Site-specific binding of a PPR protein defines and stabilizes 5' and 3' mRNA termini in chloroplasts.

Abstract

Chloroplast mRNA populations are characterized by overlapping transcripts derived by processing from polycistronic precursors. The mechanisms and functional significance of these processing events are poorly understood. We describe a pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) protein, PPR10, whose binding defines mRNA segments derived from two transcription units in… (More)
