The Role of NCP as an Assembly Factor of the Plastid-Encoded RNA Polymerase (PEP) Complex in Plants

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Light initiates chloroplast (green plastid) biogenesis by facilitating the assembly of the plastid-encoded RNA polymerase (PEP) complex. Previous genetic study identified NUCLEAR CONTROL OF PEP ACTIVITY (NCP) that is required for the assembly of the PEP complex, although the mechanism is still unknown. I hypothesize that NCP directly interact with components of the PEP complex. We discover that NCP functions as an assembly factor through direct interaction with the core components.
