Inheritance of Nitrite Reductase

Although nitrite reductase (NiR) resides primarily in the chloroplast (Dalling et al., 1972; Lips et al., 1972; Miflin, 1974; Ritenour et al., 1967; Washitani et al., 1977) it has not been determined whether this enzyme is coded for by chloroplast DNA or by nuclear DNA.
