By Editors Cytoplasm Definition Cytoplasm refers to the fluid that fills the cell, which includes the cytosol along with filaments, proteins, ions and macromolecular structures as well as the organelles suspended in the cytosol. In eukaryotic cells, cytoplasm refers to the contents of the cell with the exception of the nucleus.
The next day the overnight cultures OD between 1. The supernatant was discarded. Each pellet was re-suspended in 5 ml of agromix buffer. The Agromix was incubated for 2 h in the dark at rpm on a rotary shaker at room temperature.
Both bacterial suspensions 19 K, gene of interest were combined such that the final suspension with an OD between 0. This ratio for 19K in the infiltration mixture has been proven to be effective to enhance the transient expression of several proteins due to the suppression of gene silencing by 19K.
However, the optimum ratio might be different for other proteins. An OD higher than 1. This mix was infiltrated by pressing the tip of a syringe without needle onto the lower leaf surface of weeks old, well watered, Nicotiana benthamiana.
The third, fourth and fifth youngest leaf were used for agroinfiltration Figure 1A. The infiltrated area on the leaves were marked using a marker pen Figure 1B. It is important to water the plants in the morning of the day on which the agroinfiltration takes place. Otherwise, it is difficult to infiltrate the leaf tissue successfully without damaging too much the tissue.
Agroinfiltration procedure Chloroplast isolation of transiently transformed N. For optimal yield of intact chloroplasts the plant material should be harvested from tobacco plants at the end of the dark cycle and kept in the dark to avoid excess levels of starch accumulation that can rupture the chloroplast envelope during centrifugation.
The intact chloroplasts will sediment as a green pellet, whereas the broken chloroplasts remain on the top of the Percoll layer Figure 2.
The chloroplast enriched suspension was kept on ice. The quality of the pelleted chloroplasts was confirmed by applying phase contrast microscopy. Intact chloroplasts appear opaque with a halo surrounding them Figure 3A.
Broken chloroplasts exhibit a dark green, granular, and non-refractive appearance Figure 3B. Chloroplasts were shock frozen in liquid nitrogen. The supernatant with soluble chloroplastidic proteins was transferred to a new tube.

The filtrate is subjected to a short centrifugation at relatively low speed followed by gentle resuspension of the pelleted chloroplasts. All operations are conducted at OC as. underside of the leaf unbroken. Carefully peel the epidermis from the lower side of the leaf by gently separating the two halves.

A piece of foil has been shielding a portion of the leaf for some time, preventing the underlying. In the normal chloroplast, the reducing power generated by light is used to reduce CO 2 to carbohydrate, a process not easily monitored in an afternoon laboratory.
Instead, we will open up the chloroplasts to admit a dye, dichlorophenolindophenol (DCPIP) which the chloroplasts can reduce. This dye is blue; its reduced form is colorless. Extraction of Photosynthetic Pigments From Isolated Chloroplast and Hill Reaction.
