Agrobacterium-mediated transient transformation of Bienertia sinuspersici to assay recombinant protein distribution between dimorphic chloroplasts
Bienertia sinuspersici, a species capable of performing C4 photosynthesis within individual photosynthetic cells, can be transformed with Agrobacterium allowing for the analysis of subcellular protein distribution under preservation of the unique cellular morphology.
