  • Transitory starch is formed in chloroplasts during the day and broken down at night. We investigated carbon export from chloroplasts resulting from transitory-starch breakdown. Starch-filled chloroplasts from spinach (Spinacia oleracea L. cv. Nordic IV) were isolated 1 h after the beginning of the dark period and incubated for 2.5 h, followed by centrifugation through silicone oil. Exported products were measured in the incubation medium to avoid measuring compounds retained inside the… CONTINUE READING
