Root elongation occurs as individual cells along the growing zone increase in volume. This increase is caused by water entering the cell either by moving across the cell membrane from the apoplast via aquaporins, or entering through plasmodesmata that symplastically connect cells to each other or with the sieve element. In this investigation we used mercury… CONTINUE READING
