High impact information on psbA

  • Truncated forms of the psbA gene were translated and stable ribosome nascent chain complexes were purified [1].
  • In addition, the accumulation of chloroplast transcripts in these cells and/or tissues (e.g., transcripts for QB binding protein of photosystem II [psbA] and large subunit of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase [rbcL]) was negatively correlated with the accumulation of CND41 [2].
  • Nuclear transcriptional activity of the tobacco plastid psbA promoter [3].
  • We have constructed a tobacco psbA gene deletion mutant that is devoid of photosystem II (PSII) complex [4].
  • Selection of an atrazine-resistant tobacco cell line having a mutant psbA gene [5].
