Sažetak
The fate of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) during plastid development and conversion between various plastid types is still not very well understood. This is especially true for the cpDNA found in plastids of naturally senescing leaves. Here we describe changes in plastid nucleoid structure accompanied with cpDNA degradation occurring during natural senescence of free growing deciduous woody species Acer pseudoplatanus L. Natural senescence was investigated using three types of senescing leaves: green (G), yellow-green (YG) and yellow (Y). The extent of senescence was evaluated at the level of photosynthetic pigment degradation, accumulation of starch, and plastid ultrastructure. Determination of cpDNA amount was carried out by in planta visualization with 4, 6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI), by Southern hybridization, and by dot-blot using a rbcL gene probe. During natural senescence, plastid nucleoids undergo structural rearrangements accompanied by an almost complete loss of cpDNA. Furthermore, senescence-associated protein components exhibiting strong binding to a ~10 kbp rbcL-containg cpDNA fragment were identified. This interaction might be important for rbcL expression and Rubisco degradation during the course of natural senescence in trees.
