High impact information on atpB

  • Here we report the results of parsimony analyses of DNA sequences of the plastid genes rbcL and atpB and the nuclear 18S rDNA for 560 species of angiosperms and seven non-flowering seed plants and show a well-resolved and well-supported phylogenetic tree for the angiosperms for use in comparative biology [1].
  • One characteristic feature was the appearance of a long transcript that spans the atpB-E operon and extends considerably into the far-upstream region of atpB [2].
