. FLOURY ENDOSPERM7 encodes a regulator of starch synthesis and amyloplast development essential for peripheral endosperm development in rice. J Exp Bot. 2016;67:633-47 pubmed publisher
Wang X, Zhang L, Zhang Y, Bai Z, Liu H, Zhang D. Triticum aestivum WRAB18 functions in plastids and confers abiotic stress tolerance when overexpressed in Escherichia coli and Nicotiania benthamiana. PLoS ONE. 2017;12:e0171340 pubmed publisher
..In brief, WRAB18 protein shows protective action behaving as a "molecular shield" in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells under various abiotic stresses, not only during ABA stress. ..

. EGY1 plays a role in regulation of endodermal plastid size and number that are involved in ethylene-dependent gravitropism of light-grown Arabidopsis hypocotyls. Plant Mol Biol. 2008;66:345-60 pubmed
..A model is therefore proposed to address the role of EGY1 in regulation of endodermal plastid size and number as well as the stimulatory effect of ethylene on hypocotyl gravitropism. ..
Wang X, Xue L, Sun J, Zuo J. The Arabidopsis BE1 gene, encoding a putative glycoside hydrolase localized in plastids, plays crucial roles during embryogenesis and carbohydrate metabolism. J Integr Plant Biol. 2010;52:273-88 pubmed publisher
..The be1-3 phenotype can be partially rescued by glucose, fructose or sucrose, implying the involvement of BE1 in carbohydrate metabolism in plastids. ..
Shen Y, Li C, McCarty D, Meeley R, Tan B. Embryo defective12 encodes the plastid initiation factor 3 and is essential for embryogenesis in maize. Plant J. 2013;74:792-804 pubmed publisher
..Western analysis indicates that plastid protein synthesis is impaired. These results indicate that Emb12 encodes the plastid IF3 which is essential for embryogenesis but not for endosperm development in maize...

. Genome-wide analysis of terpene synthases in soybean: functional characterization of GmTPS3. Gene. 2014;544:83-92 pubmed publisher
..Taken together, these data provide a comprehensive understanding of the TPS family in soybeans and suggest a promising approach to engineering transgenic plants with enhanced insect resistance. ..
