Chlorophyll, carotenoid, and lipid content in Triticum sativum L. plastid envelopes, prolamellar bodies, stroma lamellae, and grana

Abstract

The pigment and lipid content, expressed on a protein basis, is compared in wheat etioplast and chloroplast membrane fractions. Chloroplast envelopes contain less carotenoid and 1/3 more lipid than etioplast envelopes. The minute amount of chlorophyll and carotenoid found in chloroplast envelopes could be due to thylakoid contamination. Prolamellar bodies… (More)
