Abstract

Biosynthesis of the chloroplast depends upon the cooperative expression of both nuclear and plastid genes. Characterization of the integrative mechanisms involved in this interaction will necessarily first require more basic information about the component genomes. Despite its moderate complexity, our knowledge about the informational content of the plastid chromosome is still quite limited: only the genes for two polypeptides and the genes for structural RNAs of the organelle’s translation machinery have been identified and physically mapped, collectively covering approximately 10% of the chromosome’s coding capacity (reviewed in Herrmann and Possingham 1980).
