Gene Review

Arabidopsis thaliana

Welcome! If you are familiar with the subject of this article, you can contribute to this open access knowledge base by deleting incorrect information, restructuring or completely rewriting any text. Read more.

Disease relevance of psbC

  • The P6 protein of Cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) transactivates translation of the CaMV 35S polycistronic pregenomic RNA and its spliced versions, and thus allows synthesis of a complete set of viral proteins [1].

High impact information on psbC

  • Phosphorylation of D1, D2, and CP43 in the light-exposed leaves of two Arabidopsis lines with T-DNA insertions in the stn8 gene was found significantly reduced in the assays with anti-phosphothreonine antibodies [2].
  • Immunological analysis of the photosystem II protein complement indicated that significant losses of the CP47, CP43, and D1 proteins occurred upon the loss of the manganese-stabilizing proteins [3].
