Pink Petuniahybrida (cv Hit Parade Rosa) corollas were found to contain photosynthetically active chloroplasts. The corolla chloroplasts were similar to those of green leaves in size and structure. The chlorophyll (Chl) content of Petunia corollas increased during early stages of flower development, reaching a maximum just before anthesis. Chloroplasts isolated from corollas at this stage, carried out photosystem I-dependent electron transport at rates which were two-thirds of those measured in… CONTINUE READING
