ORFB is a subunit of F₁F₀ - ATP synthase: insight into the basis of cytoplasmic male sterility in sunflower

Abstract:

ORFB is the product of a gene that is conserved in plant mitochondrial genomes, and which, on the basis of sequence motif and structural similarity, is predicted to be the homologue of yeast and mammalian ATP8, part of the F₀ component of the F₁F₀ - ATP synthase. We have shown that, in sunflower, orfB transcripts are edited, increasing the similarity of the predicted protein to ATP8 proteins from non-plant species. Blue-native poluacrylamide gel electrophoresis and peptide sequencing confirm ...
