Investigating Molecular Features and the Regulatory Mechanism of NCP during Plant Evolution

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Chloroplast in plants is considered to originate from cyanobacteria through endosymbiosis. In Arabidopsis thaliana, the model species, NUCLEAR CONTROL OF PEP ACTIVITY (NCP) gene is essential for chloroplast biogenesis. We have discovered that light controls alternative transcription start site of the NCP gene, and that NCP protein shows chaperone activity. My research is to investigate how these molecular features and the regulatory mechanism of NCP have been acquired during plant evolution.
