Stromules tend to be relatively rare in cell types such as mesophyll or guard cells that contain large chloroplasts.
Messenger RNA was isolated from guard cells and mesophyll tissue as described previously and used as a template for RT-PCR.
Inactivation of plastids in the leaf mesophyll , which normally contains the majority of chloroplasts would be the most easily identified.
By such thickening, mesophyll surface area per leaf area becomes greater in sun leaves than in shade leaves.

Thus, elements of the guard cell's response to stress are present in mesophyll and xylem parenchyma cells.
Cytoplasm of the leaf mesophyll of a D. antarctica plant growing in a wet, fertile habitat on the seashore.
In addition, the magnitude of growth-associated is similar between xylem and mesophyll and between xylem and epidermis.
A single cell culture, based on protoplasts that were isolated from the leaf mesophyll of tobacco, was used.
Leaf mesophyll is differentiated into palisade and spongy parenchyma, epidermis is already formed.
