High impact information on cox2

  • Surprisingly, both the mono- and dicotyledonous cox2 transcripts were efficiently edited in the mitochondrial cauliflower and maize in organello systems, respectively, even for RNA editing sites not present in the endogenous cox2 sequences [1].
  • Therefore, to better understand tRNA editing system in plants, we developed a new dicotyledonous in organello RNA editing system using cauliflower mitochondria and analysed the transcription of the cox2 gene for both maize and Arabidopsis [1].
  • Genetic diversity within the Albugo candida complex (Peronosporales, Oomycota) inferred from phylogenetic analysis of ITS rDNA and COX2 mtDNA sequences [2].

Biological context of cox2


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of cox2

  • The genetic diversity within the A. candida complex from various host plants was investigated by sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of rDNA and the cytochrome c oxidase subunit II (COX2) region of mtDNA [2].
