Abstract:
A photosynthetic apparatus is present in the epidermis of the bottom zone of the pitcher of Sarracenia purpurea L. ssp. purpurea. This has been demonstrated using conventional light and electron microscopy, as well as fluorescent and immunohistochemical techniques. Red intrinsic fluorescence by these chloroplasts indicates photochemical activity. Antibodies against the coupling factor of chloroplast ATPase and against the subunits of ribulose‐bis‐phosphate‐carboxylase were bound to the epidermal chloroplasts. This has been visualized using a ferritin‐isothiocyanate labeled second antibody. These results unequivocally prove the existence of the two main proteins which are associated with the photophosphorylation (membrane protein) and carbon dioxide fixation (stromal protein). The possible implication of this system to interrelationships between the carnivorous plant and aquatic insects inhabiting its leaves is discussed. Copyright © 1985, Wiley Blackwell.
