Effects of Chloroplast DNA Content on the Cell Proliferation and Aging in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

Abstract

is an unicellular green alga that contains one cup-shaped chloroplast with about 60 copies of cpDNA. Chloroplasts (cp) multiply in the cytoplasm of the plant cell by binary division, with multiple copies of cpDNA transmitted and maintained in successive generations. The effect of cpDNA copy number on cell proliferation and aging was investigated using a C… (More)
