At3g27925: DEGP1 (DegP protease 1)

Encodes a DegP protease, nuclear gene encoding chloroplast-targeted protease that can degrade two lumenal proteins, plastocyanin and OE33, suggesting a role as a general-purpose protease in the thylakoid lumen. Involved in the degradation of D1 protein of PS II, hence participating in the repair of PS II damages caused by photoinhibition.
