Ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco), a key enzyme of photosynthetic CO2fixation, is composed of 8 large and 8 small subunits. The Rubisco-deficient Nicotiana tabacum mutant Sp25 is able to synthesize the peptides for both sub...

Nuclear sequences homologous to the plasmid-like DNA, B4, were analyzed in the Japonica rice variety, Fujiminori. Homologous sequences existed at several positions in the nuclear genome, but each contained only a portion of the B4 sequence. It was...
