RNA editing in trans-splicing intron sequences of nad2 mRNAs in Oenothera mitochondria



RNA editing in trans-splicing intron sequences of nad2 mRNAs in Oenothera mitochondria



Journal of Biological Chemistry 267(11): 7615-7623



The complete open reading frame of subunit 2 of the NADH dehydrogenase in Oenothera mitochondria is split into five exons. The first two and the last three exons are encoded in distant genomic locations and are transcribed separately. Three tRNA genes coding for tRNA(Cys), tRNA(Asn), and tRNA(Tyr) are located upstream of the terminal three exons c, d, and e. The genomic distance, the interspersed tRNA genes, and the group II intron sequences flanking the two separated exons suggest trans-splicing to be required to connect exons b and c. Maturation of the mRNA includes RNA editing at 36 sites in the open reading frame. Three RNA editing events are observed in the split group II intron sequences. Two of these events allow after editing additional base pairings in the secondary structure, one in the stem of domain I, the other in the putative trans-pairing region of domain IV. These RNA editings may thus be involved in the trans-splicing reaction.
