How is glucose transported through the plant?
The glucose is transported to different parts of the plant through specialized tissues called phloem. The phloem cells are elongated and tubular with thin-walled sieve cells with perforations that allow the glucose molecules to flow to the different parts of the plant.
Glucose is transported to all the parts in the plant,especially the Mesophyll Spongy Layer..which is on top on the stomata and guard cells.It's transported to feed the plant.It is not transported as glucose because its very reactive and can get into chemical reactions where its not needed or wanted.And might be lost.Its converted to starch to be stored or used for energy.Dont want to get into detail.Jazakallahu Khair.
Water is transported through the plant in Xylem vessels, these begin in the roots and end in the leaves of the plant; water is translocated through a combination of "transpirational pull" and capillary action. Xylem is one of two "conductive" tissues responsible for moving water and the products of photosynthesis (glucose) through the plant, the tissue responsible for moving the "food" around is Phloem.
Vegetables are obtained from a variety of plant parts eg roots, leaves, stems. What they have in common the the use of starch as a way of storing food. Starch is made by the plant from glucose (sugar). Glucose is made in the leaves by the process of photosynthesis. The glucose is turned into sucrose and then transported through cells called phloem to other parts of the plant. When it reaches its destination the sucrose…
In a flowering plant, the glucose is formed during photosynthesis is stored in the form of starch(insoluble)...but when it is needed, it is converted to sucrose(soluble) which flows through the phloem and is utilized, while rest is again converted to starch and stored hence, it is transported in the form of sucrose
1. The plants need energy, this they obtain by the process of respiration. Some glucose which a leaf makes maybe broken down by respiration to release energy. 2. The glucose may be converted to starch and stored. 3. The glucose maybe used as the starting point to make other organic substances. 4. The glucose maybe transported to other parts of the plant where it is needed; It is transported in the form of sucrose.
•Glucose is soluble. It is transported in the plant as soluble sugars but stored as starch - which is insoluble, so it cannot escape from the cells. The stored starch can be turned back into glucose later and used to release energy by respiration. Starch and glucose can also be used by the plant to make * •cellulose for their cell walls * •proteins for growth and repair * •fats and oils for storage by…
If by "food" you mean the product of photosynthesis, this is transported through the plant (from the leaves and green parts) by the Phloem vessels - this is generally in a downward direction. If by "food" you mean nutrients that are absorbed from the soil, these are absorbed in solution by the roots and then transported in an upward direction throughout the plant by the Xylem vessels
The gas for photosynthesis...carbon dioxide diffuses into the plant through its stomata ('holes' in the leaf's underside). Water is transported through the plant in the xylem tube (waterproof tube that makes up part of the plants veins and covers the whole plants structure) as it is drawn up from the roots where it is absorbed. It is drawn up by the water evaporationg through the stomata. The light obviously enters the leaf and enters the…
