High impact information on rpl23


Biological context of rpl23

  • The introns found in rpl23 (106, 99 and 103 bp), rps19 (103 and 97 bp) and rps3 intron 2 (102 bp) appear to represent either a new class of chloroplast intron found only in constitutively expressed genes, or possibly a degenerate version of Euglena chloroplast group II introns [2].
