Disease relevance of PSB29


High impact information on PSB29


Biological context of PSB29

  • The data indicate that the Thf1 gene product plays a crucial role in a dynamic process of vesicle-mediated thylakoid membrane biogenesis [4].

Anatomical context of PSB29


Other interactions of PSB29

  • Nongreen sectors of variegated leaves lacking Thf1 expression contain plastids that accumulate membrane vesicles on the interior and lack organized thylakoid structures [4].
