High impact information on petD

  • The protein shows a significant structural, but not primary, sequence similarity to the maize protein CRP1, which is involved in the processing and translation of the chloroplast petD and petA RNAs [1].
  • Spinach CSP41 is part of a protein complex that binds to the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of petD precursor-mRNA, a chloroplast gene encoding subunit IV of the cytochrome b6/f complex [2].
  • CSP41 cleaves the 3'-UTR of petD mRNA within the stem-loop structure, suggesting a key role in the control of chloroplast mRNA stability [2].
