That natural glow By Fernán Federici and Jim Haseloff , University of Cambridge Perhaps the most famous of the plant organelles, the chloroplast is the site of photosynthesis, and as such, is the energy workhouse of the plant cell, similar to our mitochondria. The natural autofluorescence of chlorophyll allows researchers to use fluorescence analysis techniques to ask questions about the efficiency of photosynthesis.

A green fluorescent marker is used to mark cells in blue and autofluorescence from chloroplasts is shown in red.
