Cell wall properties in Oryza sativa influence mesophyll carbon dioxide conductance (New Phytol) $

Mesophyll CO2 conductance (gm) is an important factor in determining the concentration of CO2 at the site of fixation in the chloroplast stroma, and as such is crucial for determining photosynthetic capacity.  The mesophyll cell wall provides a major site of resistance to CO2 diffusion into the stroma…
