Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Biological function
Plant ferredoxin-like protein is a Ferredoxin-I protein that is involved in the hypersensitive response (HR) and plant immune response to bacterial pathogens. The protein contains an N-terminal chloroplast transit peptide that causes the protein to accumulate within the chloroplasts of cells. In transgenic applications, the protein can also be found in the cytoplasm. The exact resistance mechanism of this protein to bacterial remains unclear. However, transgenic applications of this protein have shown that it intensifies the HR and increases the production of reactive oxygen species in response to the pathogen associated molecular pattern harpin, which is produced by Gram negative bacterial pathogens, such as Pseudomonas syringae.
