Mesophyll cells are specialized for photosynthesis. These cells in the middle of the leaf contain many chloroplasts, the organelles that perform photosynthesis. As you demonstrate your knowledge of plant cell structure by placing the labels in the appropriate locations, remember that gas exchange (oxygen and carbon dioxide) takes place within the chloroplasts, and the food produced by the chloroplasts must move out of the cells to other parts of the plant.
