Abstract: Photosynthesis is the physical basis of almost all biological survival and development events. Chloroplasts are important organelles in green plants for photosynthesis. Although chloroplast development and regulation has been a research focus, the process and molecular mechanism is not fully clear. This paper summarizes recent studies about chloroplast process, development regulation and chloroplast-to-nucleus retrograde signaling for better understanding chloroplast development and regulation.
