High impact information on ADK1

  • Heynh mutant deficient in an isoform of adenylate kinase (ADK; At2g37250) was isolated by reverse genetics [1].
  • All these observations suggest that the altered polypeptide composition of PSI perturbs the docking of phosphorylated LHCII, making psae1-1 a unique mutant for the study of PSI-LHCII interactions and additional effects of the mutation, such as a decrease in grana stacking and increased adenylate kinase activity [2].
