What will the effect of this mutation be

You isolate a mutant plant with a defective desaturase enzyme, such that it is no longer capable of homeoviscous adaptation when temperatures drop from 37 degrees centigrade (summer in Kansas) down to 10 degrees (fall temperatures). What will the effect of this mutation be on either (pick one) a) chloroplast function in the plant or b) mitochondrial function in the plant, in terms of the function of the specific pathways we have described in these organelles).
