We have isolated cDNA clones encoding a novel factor (PAP-I) that is a component of a multi-subunit poly(A) polymerase from pea seedlings. The encoded protein, when isolated from appropriately engineered Escherichia coli, was active as a poly(A) polymerase, either with an associated RNA binding cofactor (PAP-III) or with free poly(A) as an RNA substrate. The latter observation indicates that PAP-I is in fact a poly(A) polymerase. PAP-I bore a striking resemblance to an as yet uncharacterized cyanobacterial protein. This observation suggested a possible chloroplast localization for PAP-I. This hypothesis was tested and found to be substantiated; immunoblot analysis identified PAP-I in chloroplast but not nuclear extracts. Our results suggest that PAP-I is a component of the machinery that adds poly(A) to chloroplast RNAs.
