Leaf microbodies (peroxisomes) and catalase localization in plants differing in their photosynthetic carbon pathways


The tropical grasses sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) and pangolagrass (Digitaria decumbens) contained fewer leaf microbodies than temperate orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata). Leaf microbodies were seen in both the mesophyll and bundle sheath cells of tropical grasses. The fibrous elements in the microbodies of tropical grasses differed from those of the… (More)
