Small cis-acting sequences that specify secondary structures in a chloroplast mRNA are essential for RNA stability and translation.

Abstract

Nucleus-encoded proteins interact with cis-acting elements in chloroplast transcripts to promote RNA stability and translation. We have analyzed the structure and function of three such elements within the Chlamydomonas petD 5' untranslated region; petD encodes subunit IV of the cytochrome b(6)/f complex. These elements were delineated by linker-scanning… (More)
