Using sulfolipid to locate plastid thylakoid membranes in gradients from dark-grown resting cells it has been possible to study the plastid thylakoid membrane polypeptides of Euglena gracilis var. bacillaris undergoing light-induced chloroplast development. All plastid thylakoid bands seen in dark-growing wild-type cells and in mutant W3BUL in which plastid DNA is undetectable, are observed to increase in amount during plastid development. Others, which are undetectable in dark-grown wild-type… CONTINUE READING
