Abstract


Light-dependent Ca2+ influx into intact spinach chloroplasts, measured with the metallochromic indicator arsenazo III, is stimulated by uncouplers (FCCP, CCCP, nigericin) and inhibited by ruthenium red. The data presented demonstrate that light-dependent Ca2+ influx into chloroplasts is electrogenic and mediated by a uniport-type carrier. The characteristics of the carrier system are similar to those of the Ca2+ uniport of mitochondria.
