Loss of the Chloroplast Transit Peptide from an Ancestral C3 Carbonic Anhydrase Is Associated with C4 Evolution in the Grass Genus Neurachne

Clayton, Harmony; Saladié, Montserrat; Rolland, Vivien; Sharwood, Robert; Macfarlane, Terry D.; Ludwig, Martha


Neurachne is the only known grass lineage containing closely related C3, C3-C4 intermediate, and C4 species, making it an ideal taxon with which to study the evolution of C4 photosynthesis in the grasses. To begin dissecting the molecular changes that led to the evolution of C4 photosynthesis in this group, the complementary DNAs encoding four distinct b-carbonic anhydrase (CA) isoforms were characterized from leaf tissue of Neurachne munroi (C4), Neurachne minor (C3-C4), and Neurachne...[Show more]
