Stromules are stroma-containing tubules which can grow from the surface of plastids, most commonly leucoplasts and chromoplasts, but also chloroplasts in some tissues. Their functions are obscure. Stills from video rate movies are presented here. They illustrate interaction of stromules with cytoskeletal strands and the anchoring of stromules to unidentified components at the cell surface. Anchoring leads to stretching and relaxation of stromules when forces arising from cytoplasmic streaming...[Show more]
