Abstract

In developing leaves, photosynthetically competent chloroplasts arise from small, undifferentiated proplastids that are present in meristematic cells. This process, called greening, involves the coordinate regulation of many nuclear and chloroplast genes (Mullet, 1988). The cues for the initiation of this developmental program are both extrinsic and intrinsic.
