Lack Of Choloroplast In Onion Cells

Postby ccBiologist » Sun Nov 27, 2011 5:31 pm

I observed the epithelial of onion cells under the microscope and i realized that they dont have chloroplasts ? my hypothesis is that because they are storage cells and they dont make their food , they would have no need for chloroplasts. Anyone would like to correct me or give me additional information it would be most appreciated .

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
