Protein synthesis in Petunia hybrida chloroplasts isolated from leaves and cell cultures

Isolation and incubation conditions were established for Petunia hybrida chloroplasts capable of performing in vitro protein and RNA synthesis. Under these conditions, chloroplasts from leaves as well as from the non-photoautotrophic mutant green cell culture AK-2401 are able to incorporate labeled amino acids into polypeptides. Intact chloroplasts can use… CONTINUE READING
