What Is the Main Job of a Leaf Mesophyll Cell?

Answer

The main function of the mesophyll in a leaf is to facilitate and carry out photosynthesis; these cells all have chloroplasts and organelles responsible for photosynthesis. A plant's mesophyll also stores nutrients and energy before they are transmitted via the veins in the leaf to other parts of plant where they are needed.

The main function of a mesophyll found in a leaf is that it’s responsible for making up the plant life as we know it. It does this by providing an area where the plant photosynthesis can take place and absorb carbon dioxide. A plant's mesophyll is also responsible for storing energy and nutrients until they can be transmitted to the veins in the leaf and sent elsewhere in the plant where they are needed.
