Phylogenetic and ontogenetic integration of organelles into the compartmentalized genome of the eukaryotic cell
Abstract and Figures
The chloroplast and mitochondrion genomes encode proteins important for organellar processes like photosynthesis, respiratory chain activity, and gene expression. Expression of organellar genes is regulated by numerous nuclear-encoded proteins involved in many posttranscriptional steps such as RNA processing, editing, splicing, stabilization, and translation. Many of these proteins are sequence specific RNA binding factors which are thought to recruit enzymes and lead them to the RNA target site rather than having enzymatic activity themselves. Here, we summarize the data of our recent research on global and specific nulear-encoded factors involved in organellar RNA meabolism in a general context.
