GENETIC MANIPULATION OF PHOTOSYSTEMS I AND II
The lamellar system of the chloroplasts is composed of flattened sacs, thylakoids, and these carry out the primary processes of photosynthesis. The assembly of the photosynthetic membrane requires an intimate cooperation between the genes in the nucleus and those in the chloroplast DNA. As stipulated in the contract, our efforts have been concentrated towards the collection of further information on the following subjects: The isolation of functionally active photosystem I and II preparations of simple polypeptide composition and functional characterization of their component polypeptides. Isolation and characterisation of new nuclear gene mutants in barley. Exploitation of monoclonal antibodies raised against interesting thylakoid polypeptides. Localization and primary structure of genes in the nuclear and chloroplast DNA coding for selected thylakoid polypeptides.
