Group II intron splicing in wheat mitochondria during embryo-to-seedling development

Jennifer Li-Pook-Than
Plant mitochondrial transcripts undergo complex RNA processing, including intron removal and C-to-U editing. My focus has been on the excision of the highly-structured group II introns, mainly located in NADH dehydrogenase ( nad) genes encoding for complex I of the respiratory chain. Their splicing mechanism is expected to be biochemically similar to that of nuclear spliceosomal introns whereby lariats are generated via a two-step transesterification pathway utilizing an unpaired adenosine (near the 3' end of...
