The psbAI and psbAIII transcripts in Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942 are subject to accelerated turnover when cells are exposed to high light intensities, but psbAII message stability is unaffected. We used a psbAI 'minigene' which has a part of the coding sequence removed as a reporter gene in order to identify the cis-acting elements of the transcript that determine stability. While engineering the minigene to optimally mimic the native gene, we identified a stabilizer element within the… CONTINUE READING
