High impact information on nad1

  • The nad1 gene encoding subunit I of the respiratory chain NADH dehydrogenase is fragmented into five unique-copy coding segments that are scattered over at least 40 kb and interspersed with other genes in the wheat mitochondrial genome [1].
  • The unusual organization of the wheat nad1 gene is attributed to mitochondrial DNA rearrangements within introns, and a trans-splicing model involving secondary structural interactions between group II-like intron pieces is proposed for its expression [1].
  • RNA editing occurs at sites asymmetrically distributed along the wheat nad1 coding region, and the initiation codon is created by RNA editing [1].
