A series of cytoplasmic mutants of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) were generated and characterized. Compared to wild type tobacco, they were found to have diminished levels of photosynthetic pigments and a range of functional impairments including modified chlorophyll fluorescence properties, loss of Photosystem I and/or II electron transport activity, and aberrant ultrastructure. Although the loss of defined functional activities was correlated with the depletion of specific thylakoid membrane… CONTINUE READING
