  Leucoplast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Leucoplasts are a category of plastid and as such are organelles found in plant cells.
Extensive networks of stromules interconnecting leucoplasts have been observed in epidermal cells of roots, hypocotyls and petals, and in callus and suspension culture cells of tobacco.
In some cell types at certain stages of development, leucoplasts are clustered around the nucleus with stromules extending to the cell periphery, as observed for proplastids in the root meristem.

 Stromule - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stromules are microscopic structures found in plant cells.
Stromules (stroma-filled tubules) are highly dynamic structures extending from the surface of all plastid types, including proplastids, chloroplasts, etioplasts, leucoplasts, amyloplasts, and chromoplasts.
Stromules are usually 0.35–0.85 µm in diameter and of variable length, from short beak-like projections to linear or branched structures up to 220 µm long.

 Vernon MS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Descended from a nonphotosynthetic mutant, these obligate heterotrophs retain a plastid (leucoplast) with a functional protein synthetic system, and a plastid genome (lpDNA) with functional genes encoding proteins required for transcription and translation.
Selection for these codons may be relaxed because leucoplasts synthesize fewer proteins than chloroplasts and thus require a lower rate of synthesis of elongation factor Tu.
Relaxed selection due to a lower protein synthetic load is also a plausible explanation for the accelerated rate of evolution of rrn16, but the available data are insufficient to test the hypothesis for this gene.

The ACP encoding genes of C. muelleri were cloned and sequenced to determine whether the two copies are identical.
Ultrastructural examination of chemically fixed and cryofixed N. alba revealed that the organism lacked a typical diatom chloroplast, but retained a leucoplast.
Immunolocalization of ACP was used to determine if the leucoplast is the site of fatty acid biosynthesis in N. alba.

DNA molecules occurring within chloroplasts have been observed to fall within an approximate size range of 120-160 kilobase pairs.
Previous (chloroplast) molecular biological research has demonstrated that the diatom Nitzschia alba retains a rudimentary chloroplast, termed as a leucoplast, which lacks all photosynthetic function.
