Root Hair Cell
Transcript of Root Hair Cell
Absorbs minerals and water from the soil
Takes this solution up through the roots to the rest of the plant
Root hairs form an important surface over which plants absorb most of their water and nutrients
It keeps the plant alive by giving it nutrients and water by absorbing it through the cell.
The particular organism lives in soil.
The root hair cell is an asset to its living conditions because it can extract things from the soil.
They are also directly involved in the formation of root nodules in legume plants.
What is a root hair cell?
It is a eukaryote cell
its special because of:
its unique shape
also called sap
Root Hair Cell
They have a large surface area, which makes absorbing both water and minerals more efficient using osmosis.
Root hair cells can survive for 2 to 3 weeks and then die off.
When a new root hair cell grows it excretes a poison so that the other cells in close proximity to it are unable to grow one of these hairs
Root hair cells secrete acid (H+ from mailc acid) which exchanges and helps solubilize the minerals into ionic form
