Multiple mechanisms for enhanced plasmodesmata density in disparate subtypes of C4 grasses

Danila, Florence; Quick, W Paul; White, Rosemary Gillian; Kelly, Steven; von Caemmerer, Susanne; Furbank, Robert


Proliferation of plasmodesmata (PD) connections between bundle sheath (BS) and mesophyll (M) cells has been proposed as a key step in the evolution of two-cell C4 photosynthesis; However, a lack of quantitative data has hampered further exploration and validation of this hypothesis. In this study, we quantified leaf anatomical traits associated with metabolite transport in 18 species of BEP and PACMAD grasses encompassing four origins of C4 photosynthesis and all three C4 subtypes (NADP-ME,...[Show more]
