The salvage pathway allows the rapid provision of nucleotides necessary for DNA synthesis and repair. In plants, this pathway is particularly important for the replication and repair of the chloroplast genome. In its absence, the replication efficiency is reduced which induces genome instability and the use of alternative replication origins. This study by José Gualberto’s team in collaboration with Alice Barkan’s laboratory (University of Oregon) was published in the journal Plant Physiology.
