Most water moving through the apoplast from the soil into the stele cells first crosses a plasma membrane in the cells of the endodermis. The plant cell wall contains cellulose and other polysaccharides. Cohesion is the tendency of water molecules to attract other water molecules by hydrogen bonds. When sugars are actively transported into a cell, what happens to the turgor pressure inside that cell as a result?

Select below the sequence of structures you would encounter in moving from the inside to the outside of a typical cell.
