A leaf of a Rumex species is shown, with a schematic section of the leaf. The cuticle protects the epidermis of the leaf and acts as a defensive barrier and as a barrier to limit water loss. The epidermis layer of cells produces the cuticle and further protects the photosynthetic cells within the leaf. The palisade layer of cells is part of the photosynthetic mesophyll of the leaf. The palisade cells are arranged in vertical files and contain large numbers of chloroplasts. This layer can be very variable; in some leaves there can be more than one layer, and in leaves from other species this layer can be completely absent.

If three-carbon phosphorylated sugar is not exported from the chloroplast, one possible option for the plant is to convert it into glucose 1-phosphate and then use it for starch synthesis. This pathway releases phosphate ions progressively and starch is synthesized. These can then be used for further ATP synthesis. A build-up of three-carbon phosphorylated sugars and a fall in stromal phosphate ions activate the enzymes involved in starch synthesis.
