Chloroplast protein synthesis in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is dispensable when cells are provided acetate as a carbon source. Mutants defective in synthesis, assembly, or function of chloroplast ribosomes are therefore conditionally viable. Positive selection of nonphotosynthetic cells on arsenate has been combined with a simple screening procedure to… CONTINUE READING
