It is concluded that the temporal sequence of events following illumination probably are protonation, changes in the environment within the membrane, change in membrane thickness,change in internal osmolarity accompanying ion movements with consequent collapse and flattening of thylakoid,Change in the gross morphology of the inner chloroplast membrane system, and change in thegross morphology of whole chloroplasts.
Low Temperature Increases Ethylene Sensitivity in Actinidia chinensis ‘Rainbow Red’ Kiwifruit
Results suggest that low-temperature storage enhances ethylene sensitivity in ‘Rainbow Red’, and expression of ripeningrelated genes ACS1, ACO3, EIL4, ERF14, and PGB rapidly increased with ethylene treatment following ripening.
The role of cations in the organization of chloroplast membranes.
Light-induced changes in the conformation and configuration of the thylakoid membrane of Ulva and Porphyra chloroplasts in vivo.
The ultrastructural basis of light-induced transmission and light scattering changes of thalli of Ulva and Porphyra were investigated and an explanation for the observed conformational and configuration changes was proposed in terms of correlated changes in ionic environment and osmotic properties of chloroplasts in vivo which are initiated by photosynthetic reactions.
Arrangement of microtubules during spore formation in Equisetum arvense (Equisetaceae)
It is concluded that the spiral bands of MTs are functionally equivalent to cortical MTs in secondary wall formation in Equisetum arvense and are involved in the deposition of the cellulose microfibrils in the elater.

The pyrenoid in algal chloroplasts was shown to be a mass of Calvin-cycle enzyme, ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO) by immuno-electron microscopy.
The Timber Properties of Birch Grown in a Plantation in Atsuma, Hokkaido
The wood qualities of birch species grown in a plantation in Atsuma, Hokkaido, were investigated. Shirakamba (Japanese white birch ; Betula platyphylla), Udaikamba (Japanese red birch ; Betula
