Species-specific RNA editing patterns in the mitochondrial rps13 transcripts of Oenothera and Daucus

Transcripts from the rps13 locus, which encodes ribosomal protein S13, in Oenothera and Daucus mitochondria are edited by several cytidine to uridine transitions in both plants. Analysis of individual cDNA clones and polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified cDNA from the total mitochondrial mRNA population shows different editing patterns in the two… CONTINUE READING
