ClpP is a proteolytic subunit of the ATP-dependent Clp protease, which is found in chloroplasts in higher plants. Proteolytic subunits are encoded both by the chloroplast gene, clpP, and a nuclear multi gene family. We insertionally disrupted clpP by chloroplast transformation in tobacco. However, complete segregation was impossible, indicating that the chloroplast-encoded clpP gene has an indispensable function for cell survival. In the heteroplasmic clpP disruptant, the leaf surface was rough… CONTINUE READING
