Abstract

Abstract In the presence of a system for the incorporation of aminoacids, formyl group donor and puromycin, mitochondria and chloroplasts can initiate “in vitro” the synthesis of peptides with formyl-methionine at the N-terminus. This indicates that in these organelles endogenous messenger(s) programme polypeptide chains starting with formyl-methionine.
