Sequence of expression of a fused mitochondrial gene associated with petunia cytoplasmic male sterility compared with normal mitochondrial genes in fertile and sterile plants



Sequence of expression of a fused mitochondrial gene associated with petunia cytoplasmic male sterility compared with normal mitochondrial genes in fertile and sterile plants



Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London B Biological Sciences 319(1193): 199-208



The mitochondrial genome of plants specifies the trait known as cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS). By comparing recombinant mitochondrial genomes present in Petunia CMS and fertile somatic hybrids, a mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) region associated with the sterility phenotype was identified. This CMS-associated mtDNA region carriers a gene fusion (termed Pcf) which contains coding region homologous to an ATP synthase proteolipid gene (atp9), a cytochrome oxidase subunit II gene (coxII), and an unidentified reading frame, designated urfS. The 5' flanking sequences are identical to those of a normal atp9 gene in the CMS mtDNA; the source of the 3' flanking sequences has not been identified. S1 nuclease protection experiments have identified three Pcf gene transcripts, whose termini map to the same 5' locations as three transcripts of two normal atp9 genes in CMS and fertile plants. In a fertile Petunia line, an additional transcribed atp9 gene with a divergent 5' flanking region was identified. Although transcript abundance of homologous atp9 genes did not vary significantly between leaves and anthers in CMS and fertile lines, Pcf gene transcripts were four to five times higher in anthers than in leaves of the CMS plants.
