In leaves of C4 -plants malic acid synthesis during CO2 -fixation occurs in

  • epidermal cells

  • mesophyll cells

  • bundle sheath

  • guard cells

Answer

B.

mesophyll cells

C4- plants show Kranz anatomy. In the leaves of C4- Plants the vascular bundles are surrounded by bundle sheath of parenchymatous cells, which in turn are surrounded by mesophyll cells. In C4 -plants and Hatch and Stack pathway involve two carboxylation reaction one taking place in the chloroplast of mesophyll cells and other in the chloroplast of bundle sheath cells.
