Chloroplast peripheral reticulum in Nymphoides indica

Margaret E. van Steveninck, David Goldney, R.F.M van Steveninck

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An extensive chloroplast reticulum is present in the lower epidermis and sub-epidermis of the leaf of Nymphoides indica. It causes distortion of the chloroplast margin, and may appear in the form of vesicles or a complex tubular network. Previous reports of chloroplast peripheral reticulum have suggested a relationship with the C4-dicarboxylic acid pathway of photosynthesis. N. indica has the recognised characteristics of a C3 plant.
