Developmental regulators of Kranz anatomy

Abstract:

The C4 biochemical pathway is the most efficient form of photosynthesis in warm environments and introducing this system into globally significant, but less efficient, C3 photosynthetic crops could bring major yield increases. The most photosynthetically efficient C4 grass species have a specialised leaf anatomy characterised by high vein density with two distinct cell types radially arranged around the vascular bundles (Kranz anatomy).
