Leaf senescence in a non-yellowing mutant of Festuca pratensis: Proteins of photosystem II

  title={Leaf senescence in a non-yellowing mutant of Festuca pratensis: Proteins of photosystem II},
  author={Paul I. Hilditch and Howard Thomas and Barry J. Thomas and Lyndon J. Rogers},
The senescence of leaves is characterized by yellowing as chlorophyll pigments are degraded. Proteins of the chloroplasts also decline during this phase of development. There exists a non-yellowing mutant genotype of Festuca pratensis Huds. which does not suffer a loss of chlorophyll during senescence. The fate of chloroplast membrane proteins was studied in mutant and wild-type plants by immune blotting and immuno-electron microscopy. Intrinsic proteins of photosystem II, exemplified by the… CONTINUE READING
