AbstractIron deficiency in plants, characterized by yellowing of the leaves, indicates that chlorophyll, the green coloring matter, is not being produced. While iron is not a constituent of chlorophyll, studies with algae indicate that iron functions in the synthesis of a specific kind of ribonucleic acid, which in turn regulates chlorophyll synthesis through a chain of reactions which as yet are largely unknown.
