Abstract

This work identifies new pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) RNA editing factors in chloroplasts, investigates their off-target effects, and characterises functions of modified PPR editing factors in plants. This work gains insights into the targeting specificity of PPR editing factors and the functional diversity of PPR motifs. This work demonstrates the challenges to be overcome in
retargeting PPR editing factors.
