phloem is a plant cell
xylem transports water around the plant whilst the phloem is responsible for transporting nutrients. ^ horible answer ^ the xylem is specialised by it has pits in the sides of it so the water can flow sideways and in the roots the xylem is cross shaped so it is strong.
Yes it is
Phloem consists for a sieve tube and a companion cell
yes, in the companion cell
The cells having sieve like perforations in their cell walls present in phloem are the sieve tubes of the phloem.
turn you on.
yes, in that it has no plasticity.
its a specialised cell because its characteristics are adapted to its function. for example, the red blood cell is round and flat so it can carry oxygen efficiently
The life span of phloem parenchyma is 1 year. Phloem parenchyma is a rectangular cell that is slightly larger than a companion cell.
A specialised cell is for a sertain job. ie a red blood cell is to carry oxygen to the body.
A cell which is Specialised to perfom a specfic function
what happens when a cell becomes specialised
Animal cells 1 . Musule cell 2 . red blood cell Plant cells 1. Guard Cells
for example phloem .... doesnt have a nucleus ... and it needs a nucleus to survive ... thats why they have a companion cell which have a nucleus for them ...if u try to separate the companion cell from the phloem the phloem will die after some time
It is trianglular and has spikes. Also the phloem cell structure is made up of many spirals which enables it to stay strong.
