Chloroplast-cytoplasmic interrelations involved in chloroplast development in Chlamydomonas reinhardi y-1: effect of selective depletion of chloroplast translates

Chlamydomonas reinhardi y-1 cells grown in the dark in the presence of chloramphenicol (CD cells) are depleted of photosynthetic membranes and 70S translates. These cells were found to be unable to synthesize chlorophyll in the light until chloroplast protein synthesis was resumed. On the other hand, CD cells acquired the capacity to partially green in the… (More)
