A model of a simplified mesophyll cell with 210 chloroplasts was made in the Cortona software (Fig. "Whereas wild-type plants have 80 to 120 chloroplasts per mesophyll cell, the accumulation and regulation of chloroplast (arc) mutants used in this study have between one and about 30 chloroplasts per mesophyll cell (Table III)." DA Chloroplast counting using the virtual 3D disector probe. Terashima NJ T Gradients in leaf anatomical parameters, e.g. However, this is a much more time-consuming approach than application of the disector method. We compared 2D and 3D approaches to chloroplast counting from different points of view: (i) in practical measurements of mesophyll cells of Norway spruce needles, (ii) in a 3D model of a mesophyll cell with chloroplasts, and (iii) using a theoretical analysis. should be estimated with a small error, , because it is not possible to divide by zero, and with an error of about (Marsaglia, 2006). . Sellden The bundle sheath cells lack intercellular spaces. . MC AliKhan A typical chlorenchymacell of a land plant contains about … Oguchi Takechi Counting chloroplast profiles in 2D yielded values of chloroplast number per cell that were 10 times underestimated in comparison with the mean number of chloroplasts estimated by the unbiased disector method in 3D. Rutherford The chloroplast density (number of chloroplasts per needle volume) was estimated by the formula (Sterio, 1984; Gundersen, 1986): where estNVneedle(chl) is the estimated number of chloroplasts per needle volume, is the sum of all sampled chloroplasts in all disector probes within a needle, ∑P’i is the sum of all points falling within a needle in all 3D probes (for calculation of needle volume in each probe) used for chloroplast counting, p’ is the number of test points in a grid in a sampling frame used for chloroplast counting, a’ is the area of the disector sampling frame (the base plane of the 3D probe) used for chloroplast counting, and h’ is the height of the disector probe used for chloroplast counting. NJ Palisade cells are column shaped and packed with many chloroplasts . Leech Teng I. Mesophyll cells are found in the plant's leaves. We concluded that maceration methods were unsuccessful due to lignification of mesophyll cell walls detected histochemically (Fig. I 3A, and then additional cells were counted by the disector with the reference plane set to the position of the former look-up plane and vice versa. (This figure is available in colour at JXB online.). Leech Crumpton-Taylor M, Grandison S, Png KM, Bushby AJ, Smith AM. The positions of chloroplasts do not correspond to the in vivo state. Mesophyll chloroplasts are randomly distributed along cell walls, whereas bundle sheath chloroplasts are located close to the vascular tissues or mesophyll cells depending on the plant species. (D) Stacks of optical sections were acquired at the positions of rectangles in (C) with higher resolution. M L Kamimura LS Jiang G Jaleel 2B), as proved in a histochemical study by Soukupová et al. DT The estimated number of chloroplasts per mesophyll cell was calculated by the ratio of the chloroplast number and the mesophyll cell number per needle volume: where estNNcell(chl) is the estimated number of chloroplasts per mesophyll cell, estNVneedle(cell) is the estimated number of mesophyll cells per needle volume, and estNVneedle(chl) is the estimated number of chloroplasts per needle volume. The difference between both estimators tested can be also explained theoretically as shown below. Qin Wang HJG (F) Face view of a model of a mesophyll cell with 210 chloroplasts made in Cortona 3D software. JV J However, a mesophyll cell is a three-dimensional (3D) structure and this has to be taken into account when quantifying its internal structure. granules in leaves have been made on a transmission Y These cells also have many chloroplasts in order to trap as much light as possible. CY Marková Entered by: Uri M: ID: 109053 Wu Karst.) . . Lhotáková 10 years ago. T FJM Possingham Sung and Chen (1989) extracted chloroplasts from macerated leaves of Glycine max L. Merrill and counted chloroplasts per leaf using a haemocytometer—a special microscope slide with an engraved graticule. WT Bundle sheath cells are comparatively thick-walled and gas impermeable cells. Z . (E) Estimation of needle cross-sectional area by a point counting method using the Point Grid module in Ellipse software (F) Two frames showing the subsequent acquisition of series for counting mesophyll cells. NS . To visualize differences in the results yielded by both methods, we used the 3D model of a mesophyll cell (Fig. Marsaglia Moreover, it is known that anatomical parameters often exhibit gradients along the leaf blade (e.g. . There are more in the palisade cells than in the spongy mesophyll. . DC Hirose Kalina However, a SUR sampling, along with both assumptions—the unbiased method for counting particles and the sufficient number of measurements—are essential for getting unbiased and accurate results (Sterio, 1984). Ellis Z Eicke Doyle The mesophyll cell (MC) chloroplasts are 5-6 PM in diameter with little or no starch. (Sari et al., 1999). . Z A Heat Stress Responsive NAC Transcription Factor Heterodimer Plays Key Roles in Rice Grain Filling, About the Society for Experimental Biology, Receive exclusive offers and updates from Oxford Academic, Copyright © 2021 Society for Experimental Biology. MJ However, in many studies, the sampling method is not well specified. in this mini-review, we highlight the cell-specific disposition of chloroplasts in C 4 The present 3D model of mesophyll cell (Fig. Hortensteiner . This method enables particles of varying shape, such as chloroplasts in a cell and cells within a tissue, to be sampled interactively and counted in an unbiased way. KA The images of the spruce needle cross-sections were captured using a Leica SP2 AOBS confocal laser-scanning microscope (Leica Microsystems, Wetzlar, Germany) with Ar laser excitation of 488nm; phenolics autofluorescence was detected in the green channel (494–577nm) and autofluorescence of chlorophyll in chloroplasts was detected in the red channel (625–710nm) (Fig. Yamasaki Albrechtová M 2004) and anti-b 6f (Baroli et al. The methods of chloroplast counting in 2D and 3D thus yielded estimates of the chloroplast number per mesophyll cell that were different by one order of magnitude. S Kubínová (G) 3D reconstruction of the mesophyll cell with chloroplasts from a stack of optical sections from confocal microscopy using Ellipse software. 6). . This should be the method of choice, especially in coniferous needles and leaves with mesophyll cells with lignified cell walls where maceration methods are difficult or impossible to use. The importance of using a proper method for counting/sampling chloroplasts is obvious, because incorrect approaches can lead to serious bias in the chloroplast number estimation. The particular mesophyll cell chosen for 3D reconstruction was a smaller one, so that it was possible to focus through the entire cell. D Pazourek Chloroplast counting in guard cells of epidermal peels using a light microscope is not problematic, enabling counting of chloroplasts contained in one cell in one focal plane; this has been applied to various plants, e. g. Beta vulgaris L. (Mochizuki and Sueoka, 1955), Solanum tuberosum L. (Frandsen, 1968), and Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) CY Hiwatashi Xu 2B) and observed regularly in our previous study (Soukupová et al., 2000). sectioned) with a higher probability. Authors often do not describe the sampling design and the method used for chloroplast counting. Nicholson The height of the disector probe was 10 μm, placed in the middle of captured stacks, i.e. AK JV Kubínová Sari YT Counted particles are those within the probe not intersecting the exclusion planes: point, counted particle; cross, particle is not counted. The exclusion planes in this scheme are represented by the dark planes and the transparent front plane (all bordered by a full line): the bottom KLMN (so-called look-up plane), KNRO, KLPO, and half-planes PLS and RNT. The plant cells which contain chloroplasts are usually parenchyma cells, though chloroplasts can also be found in collenchyma tissue. Hayashida Fujita T Chen This method is frequently used, but its practical application including sampling design is often insufficiently described (Sam et al., 2003; Hayashida et al., 2005; Teng et al., 2006; Gopi et al., 2008). Takio The profiles of chloroplasts and cells in 2D images were counted in the same stacks as those used for 3D measurements in the middle optical sections using the 2D unbiased sampling frame (Gundersen, 1977) (Fig. Panneerselvam Elliot Iqbal M O Takano .

Thank you for submitting a comment on this article. This method has already been used successfully for estimation of mesophyll cell number (Albrechtová and Kubínová, 1991; Kubínová, 1991, 1993, 1994; Kubínová et al., 2002; Albrechtová et al. 2B). and Nakai. L Jiang (This figure is available in colour at JXB online. Robertson Possingham O Cvikrová Zeeman Lhotáková To eliminate the possible shrinkage of a tissue caused by cutting, the dry stem pith of Sambucus nigra L. was used to fix the sample during cutting. RM AJ Gundersen Zellnig TG Lister O’Brian Chloroplasts in mesophyll cells of Oryza sativa L. were counted after comparing photographs from three planes of focus located inside one cell (Hassan and Wazuddin, 2000). of sections through mesophyll cells." As a result, the number of chloroplasts increases dramatically during mesophyll cell expansion producing large population of chloroplasts in each mature mesophyll cells (Pyke and Leech, 1992) or simply, chloroplasts develop from proplastids through a process that involves an increase in volume and membrane expansion (Reiter et al., 1994).

K In A. thaliana mesophyll cells, the intracellular arrangement of chloroplasts was disordered when actin filaments, which form a basket-like array around the chloroplasts, were disrupted by the actin-depolymerizing reagent (Kandasamy and Meagher 1999). Possingham and Saurer, 1969; Stettler et al., 2009) is appropriate in the case when the chloroplasts in the specimen are not overlapping. Schrader Mesophyll cells contain chloroplasts and have an irregular shape with lobed anticlinal cell walls and are prolonged in the direction perpendicular to the needle surface (Fig. . Norway spruce chloroplasts kept their chlorophyll fluorescence activity, even after 5 years of storage in a freezer, and were perfectly suitable for confocal microscopy. Collins Hasebe The probes a, b, and c are located next to each other. U As much as one-fifth of the mesophyll is composed of chlorophyll-containing chloroplasts, which absorb sunlight and, in conjunction with certain enzymes, use the radiant energy in decomposing water into its elements, Krekule . Leng All green parts of a plant contain chloroplasts—the chloroplasts, or more specifically, the chlorophyll in them are what make the photosynthetic parts of a plant green. Zubkova I Y Wang Matsum. Chen J . . JV They have large chloroplasts without grana. . V B Needles collected from Norway spruce trees were stored frozen before processing; freezing of needles does not influence various geometrical parameters of mesophyll (Lhotáková et al., 2008). Sugiyama These cells have a lot of chloroplasts in them, which is why they're the main sites of photosynthesis in the leaf (since chloroplasts conduct photosynthesis). (A) Scheme of the disector probe with chloroplasts. In plants, chloroplasts are concentrated particularly in the parenchyma cells of the leaf mesophyll (the internal cell layers of a leaf). for Triticum aestivum L. (Boffey et al., 1979), Spinacia oleracea L. (Chaly et al., 1980), Pisum sativum L. (Lamppa et al., 1980), Medicago sativa L. (Molin et al., 1982), B. vulgaris L. (Tymms et al., 1983), and Chenopodium album L. (Yamasaki et al., 1996). Wang M Please check for further notifications by email. For example, the extreme variability can be seen in the number of chloroplasts in Arabidopsis mesophyll cells estimated by various methods. . J In the leaves of the NAD-malic enzyme (NAD-ME)-type C4 dicot Amaranthus viridis L., there are chloroplasts in the vascular parenchyma cells (VPC), companion cells (CC), ordinary epidermal cells (EC), and guard cells (GC), as well as in the mesophyll cells (MC) and the bundle sheath cells (BSC). From these images, the areas of needle cross-sections and the proportions of mesophyll were estimated by the point counting method (Weibel, 1979) using the Ellipse Point Grid software module (Fig. Ramirez For maceration of needle mesophyll samples, in order to count chloroplasts directly in separated cells, different methods were tested: a 1M aqueous solution of HCl (Possingham and Saurer, 1969); a 3.5% aqueous solution of glutaraldehyde and 0.1M aqueous solution of Na2EDTA (Boffey et al., 1979); and a solution of 10% aqueous CrO3 and 10% aqueous HNO3 (O’Brian and McCully, 1981). KZ Hikosaka The anti-Rubisco (von Caemmerer et al. Čapková Miyazawa For an unbiased estimation of the number of particles in 3D with no assumption about particle shape and size, the optical disector method based on 3D unbiased sampling probe was developed (Sterio, 1984; Gundersen, 1986). M Relevance. (B) Histochemical lignin detection in cell walls (pink) of mesophyll cells using a phloroglucinol/HCl test (O’Brian and McCully, 1981). 3B–D). Kudoh T This estimate was compared with counting chloroplast profiles in 2D sections from the same stacks of sections. J Counting of chloroplasts in a solution from the macerated leaf segments (Sung and Chen, 1989) does not enable the determination of chloroplast number per cell as the number of mesophyll cells, from which the chloroplasts present in a solution are released, is not known. Systematic uniform random (SUR) sampling of positions of cross-sections along the needle. Counting chloroplasts in cells directly during focusing through the specimen using conventional light microscopy (Ellis and Leech, 1985; Bockers et al., 1997) can be applied if entire cells can be focused through and the chloroplasts are sparsely distributed in cells; however, chloroplasts usually tend to be densely packed along the cytoplasmic membrane. It is generally known that the number of chloroplasts depends on plant internal factors—developmental stage, age, and species genotype (reviewed by Possingham, 1980)—or environmental factors, although the methodical bias could conceal effects of these factors. (A) Anatomical structure of a Norway spruce needle in a cross-section. Your comment will be reviewed and published at the journal's discretion. Albrechtová This is clearly demonstrated in Fig. Chaly Zechmann EK M . MX . K Koffler 2: Mesophyll cells are thin walled and gas permeable cells. GG per mesophyll cell, the accumulation and regulation of They are a Müller Methods based on these principles were then improved (Possingham and Smith, 1972), and modified protocols have been widely used, e.g. M Lin C one and about 30 chloroplasts per mesophyll © The Author 2013. It should be stressed that profiles of particles in a 2D section of a specimen do not represent an unbiased sample of the particles, as the larger particles are sampled (i.e. In mesophyll cells, chloroplasts are usually located next to the cytoplasmic membrane adjacent to intercellular spaces to decrease the resistance to CO2 diffusion (Terashima et al., 2011). GR 2E). Jin DJ Janáček The mesophyll cells are the usual cell type as found in C … For example, the number of chloroplasts per unit of leaf area was estimated from the number of chloroplast profiles in a 0.8 μm thick section observed by light microscopy (Miyazawa and Terashima, 2001; Oguchi et al., 2005) and the number of mesophyll cells per leaf area was determined from the number of cell profiles in 5 μm thick sections (Adachi et al., 2013). Chloroplasts are important organelles of plant photosynthesizing cells as loci where the photosynthetic processes take place. . p.909 right column bottom paragraph, "Most observations and measurements of starch J Palisade mesophyll. However, the spruce mesophyll cells kept connected together by the middle lamella and cell walls. . Kubínová 5F, H, Supplementary Video S3 at JXB online) in order to demonstrate comparison of the 3D disector and the 2D profile counting methods. Why are chloroplasts green? Kubínová Garvey tissue of the leaf. within a substack of six optical sections 2 μm apart, the size of the sampling frame was adjusted to cover the whole cross-section area. Start studying Chloroplast and Palisade Mesophyll Cell Structure. Hassan electron microscope (TEM) or light microscope images RM . Y Polanschütz Possingham Bendich We concluded that the present disector method can be efficiently used for unbiased estimation of chloroplast number per mesophyll cell. Urban The studies were conducted on various plant species, considering herbaceous species in the majority of cases. Mar 30, 2012 - Green fluorescent protein (cyan) and chlorophyll (red) Determining the chloroplast number per cell in 3D reconstructions made from a series of confocal microscope images (Mozafari et al., 1997; Dinkins et al., 2001; Coate et al., 2012; Xu et al., 2012) can yield an unbiased estimate if SUR sampling is applied and a sufficient number of cells is analysed. In a nice organized order we find the palisade parenchyma cells of the mesophyll. The average Norway spruce needle volume was 8.17±1.00mm3 ([mean ± standard error (SE)] and the proportion of mesophyll in the needle volume was 72.0±0.8 %. . Wang Sung A double disector (Gundersen, 1986) was used: the probe was used in both directions, i.e. M Dean Meyers Not all cells in a multicellular plant contain chloroplasts. For full access to this pdf, sign in to an existing account, or purchase an annual subscription. if the 3D space is filled in by the spatial mosaic of the shifted copies of the disector probe and each particle in the space is sampled by one and only one shifted copy of the 3D sampling probe (Fig. Minchew B The Norway spruce needle structure (Fig. Rotino However, only mesophyll chloroplasts can change their positions in response to environmental stresses. Tholen In the bundle sheath cells carbon dioxide is fixed by the enzyme RuBisCO. The reference plane on the top does not belong to the exclusion planes. The migration pattern is unique to C 4 plants and differs from that of C 3 chloroplasts. L Particles are labelled according to the label of the probe they are counted in. In the present study, sample preparation and image acquisition were carefully designed according to the principle of SUR sampling (Gundersen and Jensen, 1987). Frandsen Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society for Experimental Biology. Leech ". The optical disector probe (Sterio, 1984, Gundersen, 1986) represents a virtual 3D block with three exclusion planes (Fig. Abak R They are spread around the chloroplast to provide a lot of solar collecting surface area. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Mesophyll tissue forms the bulk of the leaf. N 2. BE The maceration process was further adapted and applied to Arabidopsis thaliana L. and counting was accomplished after chloroplast thresholding using an image analysis program (Pyke and Leech, 1991; Marrison et al., 1999; Stettler et al., 2009). Possingham (E) 3D reconstruction of the surface of the mesophyll cell from the confocal image stack shown in (A)–(D) using Ellipse software. EB For mesophyll cell counting, 30 µm thick stacks comprising 16 serial optical sections 2 µm apart were acquired by using a plan apochromatic 20× water-immersion objective (NA 0.7) with resolution 2048×2048 pixels (750×750 µm) (Fig. However, the spatial distribution of organelles may be disrupted by freezing. Favorite Answer. Janáček Numerous maceration methods were tested in order to count chloroplasts directly in separated spruce mesophyll cells. Answer Save. SA The 3D model also showed that neglecting the 3D appearance of the cell led to the underestimation of the number of chloroplasts (Fig. In general, it is important to note that an unbiased method for sampling/counting particles must sample any of the particles with the same probability (Sterio, 1984). In the 2D profile counting method, we summed the estimated number of chloroplasts per area in each cross-section and divided it by the sum of the estimated number of cells in each cross-section.
