  • The chloroplast genes ycf3 and ycf4 from the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii have been characterized. The deduced amino acid sequences of Ycf4 (197 residues) and Ycf3 (172 residues) display 41–52% and 64–78% sequence identity, respectively, with their homologues from algae, land plants and cyanobacteria. In C.reinhardtii, ycf4 and ycf3 are co‐transcribed as members of the rps9–ycf4–ycf3–rps18 polycistronic transcriptional unit into RNAs of 8.0 kb and 3.0 kb corresponding to the entire unit… CONTINUE READING
