Each ring is composed of two parts, an outer ring in the protoplasm outside of the chloroplast and an inner ring in the stroma inside the inner membrane of the chloroplast. These rings are also called FtsZ (filamentous temperature-sensitive) rings after a counterpart that is present when bacteria divide. The similarity is indicative of the endosymbiotic origin of chloroplasts and mitochondria from bacteria. The plastid-dividing ring appears in the area of division and begins to contract after a microbody has migrated to the plastid-dividing ring (Fig.

The membrane is permeable to gases, allowing the contained gas to equilibrate with gases in the surrounding solution. The membrane must, however, be able to exclude water. It has been postulated that the inner surface must be hydrophobic, thereby preventing condensation on it of water droplets, and restraining, by surface tension, water creeping through the pores. At the same time these molecules must present a hydrophilic surface at the outer (water-facing) surface in order to minimize the interfacial tension, which would other wise result in the collapse of the gas vacuole.
