Cell Wall

CHAPTER 36 PLANT CELLS The first barrier to form between daughter cells is the middle lamella. Daughter cells expand to their final size and make polysaccharides for a primary wall. After expansion stops waterproofing materials are added for a secondary wall. Water and dissolved materials move from cell to cell by way of pit pairs. A pit is a thin spot in the primary wall where the secondary wall is absent or separated from the primary wall by a space. Strands of cytoplasm called...

Cell wall

Cell wall is a fairly rigid, protective and supportive layer surrounding the cell external to plasma membrane of plants, bacteria, archaea, fungi and algae. It is absent in animals and most protists. It was first observed by Robert Hooke in 1665. It is not an entirely rigid structure as the cell wall expands due to the growth of the cell. It varies in thickness from o.1mm to I0mm.in most of the cells, cell wall is present from the very beginning to the last, but in slime molds (myxomycetes)...

Manufacturing Cell

develop a manufacturing cell? Support your answer with examples. Cellular manufacturing is a manufacturing process that produces families of parts within a single line or cell of machines operated by machinists who work only within the line or cell. A cell is a small scale, clearly-stated production unit within a larger factory. This unit has full responsibility for producing a family of like parts or a product. All necessary machines and manpower are enclosed within this cell, thus giving it a level...

Stomata: Structure and Functions

surrounded by 2 guard cells. * Stomata closes and opens according to the turgidity of the guard cells * Stomata also allows for cooling of the leaf by loss of water through transpiration to lower leaf temperature * Guard cells open and close to control the exchange between a plant and the environment. They act as an entry point for CO2 in photosynthesis and an exit point for water vapour from transpiration. * Guard cells contain chloroplast and have uneven thick walls. * Shape of...

* Petiole - the stalk that attaches the leaf to the stem. * Covering the upper and lower surfaces of the leaf is a transparent layer of cells called the epidermis which forms a waterproof coating, the cuticle. * Substances enter and leave the leaf by two routes: veins and stomates. * Photosynthesis occurs in the mesophyll cells that contain numerous chloroplasts. These mesophyll pile up to make granum. * Water molecules are present in the air as water vapor, they are...

Differential staining

another because Differential stains affect specific microbes differently depending on the differences in their cell walls, whereas a simple stain affects all microbes the same. B. Describe the differences between gram-positive bacteria and gram-negative bacteria cell walls? Gram-positive cell walls are thick and have many interconnecting layers of peptidoglycan. Gram-negative cell walls are thinner and only have a layer of peptidoglycans that are two or three layers thick. C. What is the purpose...

xylem bio

are extension of epidermal cells Stems in vascular tissue, which is made of xylem & phloem. Xylem – transports water & dissolved minerals Long tubes made up of series of cells. From roots upwards to leaves; useable for tree with maximum height. Phloem – transport sucrose, produced in photosynthetic tissue to other regions of plant, as well as hormones & any other organic material made by plan. Role begins at leaves Transports ‘sap’ to rest of plant Phloem cells linked by sieve plates for...

Drugs Igcse

– killing or disabling pathogens without harming host cells. • Wide range to treat fungal and bacterial infections. • Antibiotics are not effective against viruses. MECHANISMS OF ANTIBIOTIC ACTION • interfere with making of bacterial cell walls: eg., penicillin Weaken bacterial cell walls. Walls made of chains of peptidoglycan molecules. Penicillin prevents linking of peptidoglycan molecules. Cell wall becomes weak, bacterium bursts (lysis). • Do...

How do fungi affect the carbon cycle?

plant’s top layer are made of a specially adapted cell. These cells have a very thin cell wall so sunlight can penetrate it easily. After this, the sunlight reaches chloroplasts which are plastids containing chlorophyll. This is where photosynthesis actually takes place. These chloroplasts move up and down in the cell to avoid getting burned by very strong sunlight. To source water plants grow roots into the ground. On these roots are root hair cells which give the plants a larger surface area to...
