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? Increases, because water enters and affects turgor pressure The widening of a tree trunk is mostly due to the activity of its vascular cambium. Select below the sequence of structures you would encounter in moving from the inside to the outside of a typical cell.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
