potato cells and chloroplasts.

Post by gazbea » Wed Oct 13, 2010 10:08 pm

I have a question about whether potato cells have chloroplasts. I would say no its the greenery above the ground in the sunlight that have them. But I am getting so many contradicting answers I am getting really confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

you probably mean the potato tubers, these of course do not have chloroplasts (unless they were kept on ligth and turned green...), but they have other plastids, especially amyloplasts

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
