Chloroplast relocation in mesophyll cells of Arabidopsis thaliana was observed microscopically and analyzed by microbeam irradiation. Chloroplasts located along the anticlinal walls in dark-adapted cells. When part of a cell was irradiated with a microbeam of high fluence rate blue light (B) simultaneously with background red light (R) on the whole cell, the chloroplasts moved towards the B-irradiated area, but did not enter the beam. The background R illumination activated cytoplasmic motility… CONTINUE READING
