Cross section of a mature leaf of Vigna mungo, immunolabelled using an antibody raised against soybean leaf vegetative storage protein 27/29 (VSP 27/29) Pink dots indicate where the VSP 27/29 is present, demonstrating its accumulation in a specialized tissue called the paravenial mesophyll is present in many legume species, a number of which have now been found to accumulate VSPs in this specialized tissue. A unique role in nitrogen assimilation and turnover is implicated for legume PVM. Composite of reflected image of silver-enhanced gold label (pink) and transmitted image of leaf cells (blue).
