The chloroplast to chromoplast transition during tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) fruit ripening is characterized by a dramatic change in plastid structure and function. We have asked whether this process is mediated by an increase in the steady-state level of RNA for plastid targeted proteins. Assays for import of radiolabeled translation products into isolated pea (Pisum sativum L.) chloroplasts were used to monitor levels of chromoplast-targeted proteins at four stages of tomato fruit… CONTINUE READING
