The plastome-encoded zfpA gene of a moss contains procaryotic as well as eucaryotic promoter consensus sequences and its RNA abundance is modulated by cytokinin


Plastid DNA of the moss Physcomitrella patens has been sequenced. An open reading frame (ORF 315) was identified downstream from rbcL, between trnR-CCG and psal. This ORF shares homology with zfpA, a putative regulatory gene in Pisum sativum. The moss ORF is preceded by a Shine-Dalgarno sequence, two plastid promoter consensus sequences, and three TATA… (More)
