We here identify the PPR protein MEF14 of the DYW subclass as a specific trans-factor required for C to U editing of site matR-1895 by genetic mapping of an EMS induced editing mutant in Arabidopsis thaliana. The wild type Col MEF14 gene complements mutant protoplasts. A T-DNA insertion in the MEF14 gene abolishes detectable editing at the matR-1895 site. Lack of RNA editing at the matR-1895 site does not alter the level of mature and precursor nad1 mRNA molecules. Such RNA editing mutants can… CONTINUE READING
