Regulatory aspects of chloroplast growth in leaves ofXanthium pensylvanicum and etiolated red kidney bean seedling leaves


The average chloroplast size was studied as a function of leaf growth in leaves of cocklebur (Xanthium, pensylvanicum) and the primary leaves of 9-day old seedlings of red kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). Diameters of chloroplasts were measured in crude tissue homogenates with the aid of a fluorescence microscope. Chlorophyll content of the leaves was… (More)
