Title: THE PLANT MITOCHONDRIAL OPEN READING FRAME ORF221 ENCODES A MEMBRANE-BOUND PROTEIN
Author: PRIOLI, LM

Abstract: We have shown that the open reading frame orf221 is an active mitochondrial gene which encodes a novel mitochondrial polypeptide. The orf221 sequence is common to higher plants but absent in animal and fungal mitochondria. A mitochondrial polypeptide with an apparent molecular weight of 21 000 was detected with a polyclonal antibody raised against an ORF221 fusion protein. In organello translation followed by immunoprecipitation with the anti-ORF221 antibody demonstrated that this polypeptide is encoded by the orf221 gene in plant mitochondria. The ORF221 was found to be a mitochondrial membrane protein in normal (N), cms-T, and cms-C cytoplasms of several inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.) and in other plant species.
