To study the functions of the nuclear genes involved in chloroplast development, we systematically analyzed albino and pale-green Arabidopsis thaliana mutants by using a two-component transposon system based on the Ac/Ds element of maize as a mutagen. One of the pale-green mutants, albino or pale green mutant 1 (designated as apg1), did not survive beyond the seedling stage, when germinated on soil. The chloroplasts of the apg1 plants contained decreased numbers of lamellae with reduced levels… CONTINUE READING
