High impact information on ycf3

  • The chloroplast genes ycf3 and ycf4 from the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii have been characterized [1].
  • A temperature-sensitive ycf3 mutant, generated by random mutagenesis of a conserved region near the N-terminal end of Ycf3, was used in temperature-shift experiments to show that Ycf3 is required for PSI assembly but not for its stability [2].

Biological context of ycf3


Other interactions of ycf3

  • Transformants lacking ycf4 or ycf3 were unable to grow photoautotrophically and were deficient in photosystem I activity [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ycf3

  • Using biolistic transformation, ycf4 and ycf3 were disrupted with a chloroplast selectable marker cassette [1].
