Structural features of the chloroplast

Abstract

Plastids are cellular organelles peculiar to plants. From the 'proplastid' form present in all young cells they differentiate for many functions, of which the most important biologically is undoubtedly that of photosynthesis, centred in the chloroplasts of leaf cells. The advent of electron microscopy has greatly extended our knowledge of the structural organization of the chloroplast, yet there remain considerable areas of ignorance, and the interpretation of some quite fundamental features is still in dispute.
