Response of plasmodesmata formation in leaves of C₄ grasses to growth irradiance

Danila, Florence; Quick, William; White, Rosemary Gillian; Marcos Barbero, Emilio Luis; Furbank, Robert


Rapid metabolite diffusion across the mesophyll (M) and bundle sheath (BS) cellinterface in C4leaves is a key requirement for C4photosynthesis and occurs viaplasmodesmata (PD). Here, we investigated how growth irradiance affects PDdensity between M and BS cells and between M cells in two C4species using ourPD quantification method, which combines three‐dimensional laser confocal fluores-cence microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The response of leaf anatomyand physiology of NADP‐ME...[Show more]
