The nuclear and plastid genomes of the plant cell form a coevolving unit which in interspecific combinations can lead to genetic incompatibility of compartments even between closely related taxa. This phenomenon has been observed for instance in Atropa-Nicotiana cybrids. We have sequenced the plastid chromosome of Atropa belladonna (deadly nightshade), a circular DNA molecule of 156,688 bp, and compared it with the corresponding published sequence of its relative Nicotiana tabacum (tobacco) to… Expand
Pigment Deficiency in Nightshade/Tobacco Cybrids Is Caused by the Failure to Edit the Plastid ATPase α-Subunit mRNAw⃞
TLDR
A plastome-wide analysis of RNA editing in these cytoplasmic hybrids and in plants with a tobacco nucleus and nightshade chloroplasts revealed additional defects in the editing of species-specific editing sites, suggesting that differences in RNA editing patterns in general contribute to the pigment deficiencies observed in interspecific nuclear–plastidial incompatibilities.

Complete plastid genome sequence of Daucus carota: Implications for biotechnology and phylogeny of angiosperms
TLDR
The availability of the complete plastid genome sequence should facilitate improved transformation efficiency and foreign gene expression in carrot through utilization of endogenous flanking sequences and regulatory elements. Expand
The chloroplast genome of Phalaenopsis aphrodite (Orchidaceae): comparative analysis of evolutionary rate with that of grasses and its phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that these conflicting angiosperm phylogenies are most probably linked to the transitional sites at all codon positions, especially at the third one where the strong base-composition bias and saturation effect take place. Expand
The Complete Nucleotide Sequences of the 5 Genetically Distinct Plastid Genomes of Oenothera, Subsection Oenothera: II. A Microevolutionary View Using Bioinformatics and Formal Genetic Data
TLDR
A single locus, the bidirectional promoter region between psbB and clpP, is suggested to contribute to compartmental PGI in the interspecific AB hybrid containing plastome I (AB-I), consistent with its perturbed photosystem II activity. Expand
Conservation of Plastid Sequences in the Plant Nuclear Genome for Millions of Years Facilitates Endosymbiotic Evolution1[W][OA]
TLDR
The results suggest that chloroplast genes transferred to the nucleus have in some cases several millions of years to acquire nuclear regulatory elements and become functional. Expand
Amino acid sequence variations in Nicotiana CRR4 orthologs determine the species-specific efficiency of RNA editing in plastids
TLDR
The heterogous complementation of Arabidopsis crr4-3 mutant, in which RNA editing of ndhD-1 is completely impaired, with CRR4 orthologous genes derived from Nicotiana species suggested that the reduction in editing efficiency in N. tomentosiformis is caused by amino acid variations accumulating inCRR4.

TLDR
By comparing the bittersweet plastid genome with all available Solanaceae sequences it was found that gene content and synteny are highly conserved across the family. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that simple models that account for the major rearrangements with a minimum of 8 IR boundary changes and 12 inversions in addition to several insertions of duplicated sequence are proposed. Expand

Nuclear-organelle interaction in Solanum: Interspecific cybridizations and their correlation with a plastome dendrogram
TLDR
There is a correlation, albeit not perfect, between the cybridization data and the plastome dendrogram, and this information should be useful for the planning of asymmetric protoplast fusion between potato and wild accessions for the improvement of pathogen and stress resistance of potato cultivars. Expand
The use of chloroplast DNA to resolve plant phylogenies: noncoding versus rbcL sequences.
TLDR
P pairwise comparisons among dicots and monocots for rbcL and two noncoding sequences of cpDNA show that these regions evolve faster (more than three times faster, on average) than rBCL, and that the trnL intron evolves at a rate that is the same as that of the intergenic spacer. Expand
Gene transfer to the nucleus and the evolution of chloroplasts
TLDR
The process of gene loss from chloroplast genomes across the inferred tree is mapped and it is found that independent parallel gene losses in multiple lineages outnumber phylogenetically unique losses by more than 4:1. Expand
Purifying selection detected in the plastid gene matK and flanking ribozyme regions within a group II intron of nonphotosynthetic plants.
TLDR
This phylogeny was used to examine the relative degrees of evolutionary constraint of both the matK gene and the non-protein-coding regions that flank it inside the trnK intron and the method of subtree contrasts was introduced to compare levels of constraint. Expand
Proliferation of direct repeats near the Oenothera chloroplast DNA origin of replication.
TLDR
The amplifications and deletions of repeats that account for the size variation at oriB are proposed to have occurred through extensive replication slippage at this site. Expand
Functional cybrid plants possessing a Nicotiana genome and an Atropa plastome
TLDR
Electron microscopic analysis of the mesophyll cells of variegated leaves revealed the presence of heteroplastidic cells, and analysis of thylakoid membrane polypeptides shows that in the cybrids the content of at least one of the major polyPEptides, presumably a chlorophyll a/b binding protein is drastically reduced. Expand
Heterologous, splicing‐dependent RNA editing in chloroplasts: allotetraploidy provides trans‐factors
TLDR
The data show that the cis‐determinants for ndhA editing are split by an intron; the editing capacity cannot be deduced from editing sites; and allopolyploidization can increase the editing Capacity, which implies that it can influence speciation processes in evolution. Expand
Occurrence of plastid RNA editing in all major lineages of land plants.
TLDR
The results indicate that RNA editing is a relatively ancient process that probably predates the evolution of land plants, and this supposition is in good agreement with the phylogenetic data obtained for plant mitochondrial RNA editing, thus providing additional evidence for common evolutionary roots of the two plant organellar editing systems.
