Use of plastome and nuclear mutants of higher plants to study the genetic control of plastid formation and function.

Abstract

We conducted comparative biochemical and electron-microscopic studies of several types of plastome and nuclear mutants of Antirrhinum majus and Pelargonium zonale. It was shown that specific blocking of the photosynthetic reaction occurs in plastome mutants of A. majus; Photosystem II was found to be damaged in the en:alba-1 mutant and photo-system I was… (More)
