why.is.chloroplast.called semi autonomous organells

Posted in English, asked by amit mishra, 6 years ago. 16141 hits.


Chloroplasts are called semi autonomous organelles because they have their own DNA. And this DNA codes for some proteins used by the chloroplast. Moreover, they can generate their own energy and do not necessarily need the cell. But their replication is controlled by the cell.

Chloroplasts and Mitochondria are the only two organelles having their own DNA.
