Plastids bear their own genome, organized into DNA–protein complexes (nucleoids). Recently, we identified a DNA-binding protease (CND41) in the chloroplast nucleoids of cultured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) cells. In this study, we examine the biochemical function of this novel DNA-binding protease, particularly in senescent leaves, because antisense tobacco with a reduced amount of CND41 showed retarded senescence. Nitrogen-depletion experiments clearly showed that CND41 antisense tobacco… CONTINUE READING
