Leaf rolling allows quantification of mRNA abundance in mesophyll cells of sorghum

Covshoff, Sarah; Furbank, Robert; Leegood, Richard C; Hibberd, Julian


In the leaves of most C4 plants, mesophyll (M) and bundle sheath (BS) cells develop and maintain highly differentiated biochemical networks. Separation and analysis of M and BS cells has greatly influenced our understanding of the C4 pathway. A number of approaches including mechanical separation, digestion with cell wall degrading cocktails, laser-capture microdissection, and leaf rolling have been used to isolate these cell types. Although leaf rolling is conceptually and practically the...[Show more]
