The gene encoding plastocyanin (petE1) from Anabaena sp. PCC 7937 was isolated using two sets of mixed oligonucleotide hybridization probes derived from conserved regions in the protein. Plastocyanin is encoded as a preprotein of 139 amino acids. The amino-terminal extension of 34 residues has all the characteristics of a signal peptide and is probably involved in translocation of preplastocyanin over the thylakoid membrane. The level of the petE1 mRNA, a single transcript of about 740 bases… CONTINUE READING
