The ultrastructure of mature guard cells of Phaseolus vulgaris L. grown under continuous light regime showed remarkable stability, remaining constant in appearance under a wide range of conditions of nutrient deficiency. The ultrastructure was quite unlike that of leaf parenchyma cells of normal plants, but had certain characteristics similar to those found in palisade parenchyma cells suffering from magnesium and potassium deficiency.
